THE ROUTE! Day Two

Well planning is going really well and I now have 45 locations sorted for where I will be staying each evening, so this means I am able to get my routes sorted accurately and will know where I’m passing through and what places of interest I can stop off and see.

Day two, Thursday June 13th, will see me leave Bournemouth and head West to Dorchester

Dorchester, a very historic town

Many thanks to my good friends Georgie and Fletcher Easton, for offering my comfortable nights stay with them

Today’s ride will cover around 44 miles and 2057 feet of elevation!

My route for day two can be found on this link….

43.8 mi Road Cycling Route on Strava

 

A detour to this natural Harbour

Places of interest along the way I will ride to include, Poole Harbour, the largest natural harbour in Europe and second largest in the world!

The Maumbury Rings, at approx mile 32, a Neolithic Henge just South of Dorchester Town, I will certainly be riding here to take a look and grab some lunch

Lunch stop

I will add the route directions to these two locations later on as a bit of local knowledge may give me a better route!

I look forward to my stay with Georgie and Fletcher, both of whom are no strangers to a good challenge!

I met Georgie while trekking in Peru, and met Fletcher while he and Georgie took part in one of my organised rides on the Isle Of Wight, I’m hoping they will join me for a wander around the town of Dorchester
