Six of us gathered at Reigate hill Car park in slight fog and fine drizzle, Mick, Xavier, Paul, Peter, Terry and myself. Numbers were down no doubt due to the Evans Trailbreak ride at Ockley. We set off over the bridge and on to Colley Hill and then turned right over the motorway bridge,then through Mogador and across Walton Heath Golf Course. After crossing the Dorking road we did the usual route up Tye Lane and towards the Car Park at Headley. We then did a sort of zig zag route across Headley Heath to Tumber Street and along to Langley Lane. We then crossed Mill Way and headed for the Mickleham Downs and hopefully to join the Downs link track. After taking one wrong turn which would have taken us on to the A24, Isoon found the Downs link track which led us on to the base of Box Hill. We then did the usual climb up the track to the National Trust Kiosk. The route back was the usual track through the woods to the Restaurant and then along the road to Headley Heath. Across Headley, down Tye Lane and back across the Golf course and over the Motorway bridge at Mogador. Finally back along the ridge to the Car Park. Towards the end the Sun was just about managing to shine through. No punctures or incidents, total distance approx 17 miles I would guess. I'm sure Micks GPS system will provide exact figures
