It's that time of year when Rcc Mtb starts to head down to Friston to take in the many fast and flowing trails the forest has on offer.
Lee had got his date in the diary with fingers crossed hoping that we would get away with dry weather as Friston in the wet can be a bit precarious.
Arriving at the carpark a lot of the usual suspects were there with a few notable absences, but the numbers were bolstered by a couple of workmates who lived locally had joined us to show us any trails that Lee didn't know!
Fran will be leading this weeks intermediate ride out from Shackleford. Heading in the direction of the Devils Punchbowl for a cup of tea and a cake.
near Shackleford Rd, Godalming GU8 6AE
Note the earler start time. Ride back by 13:30 in time to watch the TdF on the cobbles and the World Cup football.
Steve Dewey's G5 group numbering (don't tell AW) a baker's dozen (which did split on the busy roads) set off with the unusual addition of Martin B who promised to accompany us for the whole ride. Thank you Martin it was a pleasure to have you on board and a great addition you were too. Steve had promised a flattish route out to the Milk Churn (Rudgwick for those who still might not have visited this gem) taking the long way there - some 40 miles or so with 25 on the way home.
