Five riders turned out at Nonsuch Mansion for the ride to Ockham Common, Bill Martin, Adam Domaingue, Gareth, Richard and myself leading.
Our route was west from Nonsuch Park to the Hogsmill River, Horton Country Park, Chessington South, Claygate, Esher Common and Cobham to the ‘Climb of doom’ at Telegraph Hill on the common near the corner of the M25/A3 junction.
We met Barry Gregory and Dave Clarke, Dave was ‘sans bicyclette’ and using the internal combustion engine. The day had got a little warmer than when we left chilly Cheam earlier, and the trees at the Bites had created a little sun trap for us to enjoy our sustenance.
Our return route took us through Downside (back of Cobham) Great Bookham Common, west side of Leatherhead and over Ashtead Common.
Good ride chaps, 30 miles for me.
