Sat 27th and Sunday 28th Surrey Hills Rides

Post by sue m » Tue Jul 09, 2019 8:18 am

Hi Everyone.

Brian who has lead Surrey Hills rides for us in the past has offered to do so again.

The plan is
Sat 27th a ride from Box Hill for the faster riders - you need to ride in the fast group on Sundays or know that you could keep up with them! The ride is outside the traditional Surrey Hills Area and will involve some (a lot) of big ups and great downhills and single track.

Sun 28th medium paced group in Surrey Hills this is trail centre still riding rather than cross country and will involve a lot of fast and flowing single track, technical sections with roots, drops and steeps. Most of the medium group should be able to ride most of it with the odd section of walking....
This ride is open to fast and medium riders and if anyone wants to do both rides Holmbury YHA still has spaces https://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-holmb ... ChildAges=
Need to book yourself in.
The numbers on the rides will be capped at about 10 so you need to 'book' in on the forum by posting below or you can email me

If you are a medium rider and want to make a weekend of it or can only do Saturday let me know and it maybe possible to sort a ride for that day as well. (I would like to ride both days!)

Car park locations etc will be decided nearer the time.

Sue

Hi all

I should be in the car park both days but for those of you who do not know Brian he is tall with a bright red transit type van.

Looks like we could get a bit wet but still worth going...
