Southampton Away Weekend

Following the success of previous trips to Eastbourne & Maidstone, we are planning another spring weekend away this year, starting on Friday 6th May 2022 for two nights, returning to Horsham on Sunday 8th May. The venue will be Southampton & the New Forest.

Your luggage will be transported to and from Southampton. All you have to do is ride and enjoy yourself! (The club needs one member / partner to volunteer to drive the luggage to the hotel. Mileage & parking will be paid).

We have made a booking at The Star Hotel on High Street, Southampton. They have single, double or twin rooms available (5 of each room type). Bikes must be stored in a separate lockup garage  at the hotel.

The prices per person for two nights B&B, and your luggage transfer costs, will be:

  • Single room: £131.50 pp
  • Shared occupancy of double or twin: £81.50 pp
  • Single occupancy of double or twin: £161.50 pp (subject to availability)

Breakfast at the hotel is included.
Our evening meals will be at a pub or restaurant in Southampton. These will need to be paid for at the time and are not included in the costs above.

The plan is to set off on Friday and ride to Southampton from Horsham. There will be some organised groups going; however, if the distance is too much then you could take the train or get a lift. On Saturday you can ride around the lovely New Forest countryside, spend time in the local area or whatever takes your fancy.  The distance from Horsham depends on which route you take. However it could be as little as 60 miles. This would put it in the reach of most riders in the club.  There is also the option of taking the train some (or all) of the way if you feel like it.

The Saturday rides start from the Hotel and are likely to explore the New Forest lanes. There will be organised rides to suit everyone but riders can choose their own route according to their ability.

Sunday is a “free day” with the rides back entirely up to you as to the route and the pace.
Please complete this form you would like to come along and let me know what your room preferences would be.  If you are happy to share a twin/double room can you let me know who you would like to share with (if you have a preference). Once there is a complete list, we will invoice members via PayPal, with the payment due by 31st March.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
