Challenge ride to Newdigate

IMGP1090

Dorking Rec Pond

Sunday 6th August. A largely bright day saw 16 Cyclists gather at Tolworth Station, (including 4 people coming on the feeder ride from Berrylands, as there where no trains on the Chessington line), leave via West Ewell, Epsom, Langley Vale, Headley, Betchworth, Gadbrook, Parkgate, to Newdigate for lunch at the ‘Six Bells’- with a little bit of confusion over 1 order & 1 order having a late delivery-, then a minor Brake adjustment, helping to cause 3 ‘lost Sheep’ ;-(, all back together, via Henfold, North Holmwood, Dorking, Dorking Rec, Burford Bridge, Norbury Park Farm, to Bocketts Farm for Tea & BP, with the most valuable Cyclist, (the Baker of the BP), suffering a visit from the P fairy, swiftly repaired, then Leatherhead, (where a stray Branch almost stole a pair of Sunglasses), Ashtead Common, Epsom Common, Long Grove Park, Hogsmill path, Tolworth, Berrylands to Kingston. Total 44 Miles, 2 new Faces. Thanks to John E for back marking, many others for watching corners, & John D for the Bread Pudding.
