Sunday Club Run 17 April 2011- A Tale of Three Rides

Four of us met at Cheam; Tony, Andy, Brian and me. Mick Ayliffe was to meet up with us at Leatherhead where we were also expecting to find Paul White. We took the usual route out through Epsom to Leatherhead where Mick, Paul and Barry Gregory were waiting for us. Mick and Barry set off to West Clandon via a more sedate route to the “main bunch.”

Through Bookham and Fetcham to the first of the two climbs of the day up Effingham Lane. My idea of a sedate Sunday ride went down the pan when I felt the need to chase and overtake two riders in front of me which I completed in style! We re-grouped at the top and descended Dunley Hill before climbing up through the Sheepleas to the top of Combe Bottom. Turning right we hammered down past a poor London Dynamo rider to East Clandon and the short stretch of A246 to Clandon Park.

We arrived before Mick and Barry and were also joined by Paul Martin and Dave Elliott. Suitably refreshed, we head back via Hungry Hill, Cobham, Oxshot and Horton Park, with riders taking their own routes home or letting the stronger riders surge ahead!
