It'd been a while since I'd lead a ride and a while since we'd started at Reigate Hill, so it seemed about time. A smallish group meant we made good time on the trails through Walton and Headley, with the drier-than-might-have-been-expected conditions something of a relief. We were suffiiciently early to detour down White Honky, running particularly nicely albeit paid for with the winch up Minty's. Viet Cong and we were over to Norbury, through Druids Grove, absolutely brutal climb and all, then nipping up to squeeze in View to a Kill. Suddenly, alarmingly, it was time for tea.
At the Drome, we decided on a new route and tea stop. I led from my usual position (aka WW! general, well behind thr front). Charl and Roger waited for me at regular intervals as I was the one that knew the route. From Turners Hill, through Ardingley to Lindifield we overlapped a London to Brighton Charity Ride; overtaking lots of overweight cyclists did my morale a world of good. Through Mascalls and along Ketches Lane took us to our detination on the jumction with A275.
