Hi from Dave Cooke
The New Forrest Rattler is one of the top Sportives in the South, and this year is on Sunday 27th August (bank holiday weekend).
Various ride options are available from 47 miles. Camping is available on site and this year they are offering two nights, to include the Sunday. Breakfast beforehand and a burger at the end are included in the entry fee.
We've entered this three of the last four years and enjoyed it every time. The route is exceptionally pretty, with donkeys, goats, horses, cows and even pigs on the roads.
We expect to be going down on the Saturday and could take someone as we have a spare seat in the van, though they would need to bring their own camping kit as the campervan isn't big enough for three!
Details of the event can be found via the link below.
