I'm going down to the New Forest to visit my parents next weekend and was thinking of bringing the road bike and going for a ride with my dad. Anyone have particular route suggestions?
I've mostly been able to find off-road ideas on the internet (which I would do if I wasn't trying to be sociable and ride with dad), but not a whole lot of on-road. Would we be fine doing the usual 'make a loop out of the back lanes', or are there better suggestions? The fact that it's all 40mph limits makes me feel marginally safer than Somerset, but even so it's probably best to keep it around or under 50mi so we're not out all day (or wear out my dad)! We'd be starting from Lyndhurst, if that helps.
