About 50 miles social pace, the odd hill here and there. Cafe in Cranleigh area about half way.
As we left the carpark I had a slight idea where I was going but nothing set in stone. We headed on to the roughs and down to Paddington farm with the December sun shining down on us. Yes December sun.
Different G roups will need to choose appropriate destinations to finish at The Golf Club by 13:30. The Milk Churn is a popular chooice.
The weather forecast was for heavy rain and winds gusting up to 30 mph. Julie Day from Tanhouse Farm emailed me early in the morning asking if we wanted to cancel the mince pies and mulled wine. I replied that Redhill CC members were made of sterner stuff (some of them, at least) and I was confident that we would have good turn out. I then emailed Adrian to arrange a lift.
