Starting at Cheam Station at -3 degrees


MTB ride to Woking in memory of Mick O’Brien who had led the ride on several occasions. Nine riders took part in the ride, seven riders started at Cheam Station to be joined by two others at Cobham. They were Mick Ayiffe, Barry Gregory, Billy Mac Namara, Bob Green, Paul Kelly, Paul White, Andy Huddart, Trevor Hughes and Chris Devereux. Mick O’ must have been overseeing us as the weather was beautiful. The sky was blue and the sun was shining. which Mick would have loved
