If your on face book there's a rash of facebook groups:

Poole & Bournemouth Bikers (most local biker are probably a member).
https://www.facebook.com/groups/446993572004093/

This group is more week day based if you work shifts:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1625261391095072/
There is also a list of local bike nights in the documents on there one that might be of interest to you is Manic Mondays at Wareham.

I am South on the Dorset/ Hampshire border...

Editing this to add, having seen your confidence issues. There is a small friendly if eclectic group of us that meet on a Thursday with various levels of experience, quite commonly there are more females than men. We all ride at different rates and paces and generally don't take ourselves to seriously, you would be welcome as long as you enjoy a laugh...

Oooh amazing! Sadly about an hour from Poole/Bournemouth, close to the Jurassic coast so probably quite far from you!

I know when some one is choosing to be that vague about there location its great fun guessing.... Lyme is the middle of the Jurasic coast, so my guess was further East than that. IN my case the New Forest seems to satisfy most, if pushed I normally give a Neighbouring Village name just to keep some anonymity.

It can make you look like a stalker though, as some one pointed out when I could say where there Profile pictures where taken by recognising the scenery then guessing where they lived within a couple of streets.... Even thought the town they gave was alittle distance away :lol:

New forest is further east than Poole so wouldn't of gone that way for the Jurassic coast.

I used to live by Lyme Regis and know bikers down there so they would of asked them for ideas. It's a recognisable name for the area hence why i used the word area.

But people can always shoot me down in flames as well...
