This week Mike T will be Leading out from Reigate Hill car park on to the north downs
A winter mountain bike ride is not measured by the usual methods such as miles or amount of climbing, but by volume and quality of mud. Mud formed in areas of clay or chalk is thick, sticky and horrible to ride through. Sandy mud, on the other hand, is ruinously abrasive and can destroy a set of disk pads in one ride.
Dave will be leading a nice paced intermediate ride from Holmbury in the direction of Peaselake.
Expect a few trails thrown in for good measure.
Dave and Julian have been out on a recce for this one. Riding out from Rykas they are sure to lead you all down a few of your favourite trails and you haven’t seen before. Expect lots of technical single track.
With any luck it'll be cold and frosty enough that the mud will have frozen. Route likely to be decided based on the conditions on the day!
Julian will be taking us on a ride around the Coldharbour, Redlands and Leith hill area. There may even be a pint on offer at the end.
Start at the Landslip car park
