Bere Regis Cycling Weekend - 19th - 21st July 2013

There will be a cycling weekend based near Bere Regis from pm Friday 19th July until pm Sunday 21st July. This is the campsite that was planned for 2012 but was cancelled due to the unusually wet weather and the muddy condition of the site. As a reminder it offers both on-road and off-road options for cycling on the Saturday and Sunday starting at 9.30am each day.

The campsite is called ROWLANDS WAIT Touring Park and is at Map Sheet 194 (Dorchester & Weymouth) GR 843937 full details of which are at http://www.rowlandswait.co.uk with enquiries at enquiries@rowlandswait.co.uk Tel: 01929 472727.

The owners are Stevie & Ivor Cargill who have kindly agreed to discount prices for CTC Exeter. Normally the charge is £17.00 per tent pitch with and extra £2.00 for electricity. When making your reservation say you are a member of the CTC Exeter group when the charge will be just £6.50 per person per night, with free electricity should you need it. A deposit will be required. The owners have also agreed that we can use the shower facilities on completion of Sunday’s ride.

Last year we made arrangements for evening meals at the Drax Arms in Bere Regis and we hope to do the same this year with a menu being circulated for the Friday night’s choices about two weeks before the event. The Drax Arms is located near the centre of the village on West Street (the main street), and is about a mile from the campsite.

For those wanting Bed & Breakfast you could try one of the following :

The Old Mill 01929 472641
Honeycombe Cottage 01929 471660	
The Old Brewery 01929 472432

Please let me know whether you intend to come as you make your own booking with the campsite. This enables me to liaise with the campsite on numbers, and give advance warning to the Drax Arms. It also helps the planning of the rides. Any further queries please contact me by email on j.v.rowland@btinternet.com or on 01404 813027.
