Thursday 6th July, evening ride off road Platform 3, Claygate

Fifteen riders, a mix of Clarencourt and Kingston Phoenix, started at our usual meeting point in Nonsuch Park for Bill Martin’s beer and chip supper run to Claygate. A perfect summer’s evening, although at times riding towards a setting sun had some blinding effects that had trees appearing from nowhere!

L to R: Trevor, Rohan, Andy, Steve, Digger, Neil, Si, Crystal, Steve G, Jackie, Ash, Bill, myself, Jake the photographer and Jen appears to be hiding behind someone and out of shot. (there’s always one!)

A well paced ride out through Horton, Epsom Common, Prince’s Coverts, Claygate Common and arrival at Claygate Station, Platform 3 pub around 20:30hrs for food.

Barry Gregory and Bill Kent were already there upon our arrival having cycled in from different locations.

Feeding time!

After sustenance various riders drifted off for more direct routes home at times that suited them, and I for logistical reasons had reversed the ride and had my car parked around the corner in Claygate for the drive back to Berkshire.
