ACCR-Our last 'Distance' training day.




Today was the last opportunity that Jason and I had to do a full day's training ride prior to our departure in a weeks time. (John had to work today). We covered a similar distance as we did on Sunday and completed it in a similar time. The biggest difference was that our total ascent during today's ride was just under 6000ft which was more than Sundays ride.
After crossing over from Sandbanks on the chain ferry we headed out to Studland-Corfe-Wool-Moreton and Bere Regis. We then returned by the same route. The pictures today show the heavy traffic coming off the ferry on the Studland side and two shots of the tea shop at Moreton where we stopped for coffee and banana cake. I have stopped at the Moreton tea shop a number of times when I have been walking in the area and I can reccomend it. Between now and next Friday when we set off, my plan is just to do about 15miles every other day in order to keep my legs spinning.

I'm surprised we didn't bump into one another. I was also on a ride that took us past Moreton tea rooms. We were - Stu Smith, Andy Waddock, Kev Murphy and Shaun Andrews. We were going from Poole to Weymouth. Only 36 miles I'm afraid. Of course we didn't stop at the tea rooms, there is a perfectly good pub, the Frampton Arms, just up the road. Where we had a couple of pints and a pub lunch.
All the best for your ACCR.
