Phil has stepped up to the mark last minute with this one. He will be leading out of the Landslip car park at coldharbour. Expect some good technical singletrack.
Please not the starting point is WOODHATCH PARK. A steady ride with a loop to either Billingshurst or Rudgwick, direct route home.
NOTE the meeting place - Woodhatch Park. Destination: Treacles at Chiddingfold.
Lee T will be leading out from Newlands on one of his well planned rides over to Peaselake for tea.
Expect a few good climbs and and some great trails along the way.
Ten of us met up at walking Bottom for a ride more about trails than speed or distance, we welcomed two newcomers Richard (from the dark side) and Jolie (Geoff's daughter). We ride down into Peaslake and up over to our first trail - Van Goughs missing ear then up to ride Bambies legs before riding up to Holmbury hill for the customary photo opportunity. Yoghurt pots was enjoyed so much that we did it twice, then going back to repeat Bambies legs, returning to Peaslake via Barry knows Best for tea an cheese straws - massive grins all round.
About a dozen riders turned up at the Drome, but only 4 of us were signed up for the Sunday Steady; the rest headed off at a far from steady pace. I had wanted to lead a ride to Mark Cross but for the second time I was thwarted. Jacquie, Janina and Bruce wanted to be back reasonably early so we opted for Green Fingers on top of Ashdown Fotest.
I hope that anyone who is available on this Sunday will have volunteered as a marshall for the Redhill CC road race at Newdigate. After the race, I suggest that we could take a short ride out for lunch, perhaps to the Grey Dove, Walton-on-the-Hill.
