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.
