Mark R will be leading one of his ever popular intermediate rides along the North Downs making his way over to tea at Newlands Corner.
The weather forecast was pretty dismal, so I was surprised to find that 14 of us had gathered to join the expedition to the Far West. This included new rider Derek resplendent in his knee length white socks and a welcome visit from Bruce.
An early start for this one Stuart has laid down the Gauntlet riding the Downs link to Shorham. In total this should be over 70 Miles in a day. This would suit cx bikes and of course mountain bikes.
Riders would be advised to pack a bit of extra food and fluids to keep the energy levels up. There may even be a chance of an ice cream and lunch on the beach.
Although this is not the most testing terrain the mileage will offer a satisfying achievement.
Starting from GU4 8BT
This week Lee has stepped up and will be leading a ride on to the north Downs picking up the best single track the weather allows. Tea will be at Bocketts
