Bill, Dave, Freddie, Andy Huddart and Thierry took off road route from Nonsuch Park to Banstead Station, Freddie made a “controlled stop” and ended up in a thicket of Brambles, Ouch! Met up with Mick “Silent Assassin” Curtis at Banstead and discovered a new route (more of an animal track really) through Epsom Common. Lemonade […]
Seven riders set off from South Croydon in perfect cycling conditions for an excursion into Kent. Andy, Vinny, Brian, Dave Elliot, Andrew, Val and yours truly made our way mainly uphill for the first seven miles or so. Andy and Brian knew some of the roads but for the rest of the group it was […]

Bill Dave and Freddy on a long cross country route to Claygate Station to check out reports of a nearby micro-brewery. Located the said establishment which (sadly) was closed. Definitely one for another day. Bill.

We rode south through Merstham and Warwick Wold to emerge on the A25 just west of Bletchingly. We headed through the town […]
Bill, Dave, Mick and Mehdi took new route towards the “Car Wash” (skillfully avoided by our intrepid leader) and down the “Vampire” run (which our leader negotiated with no faults). Widlife count included: a Deer, several Ponies and Dave spotted a tuft of grass impersonating a Rabbit – Should have gone to spec savers? Bill […]

Before leaving Cheam Narinder had been on the mobile to arranged […]
