Hey Gladys, I know Sunday would have suited you better and I did think about that, but Sat is my only day. If you can make it, please do. I'm sure you would make mincemeat of the course.

..........and Meldy will make mincemeat of him if she sees that comment

GU4 8SE. 

That's about 100 yards short of the turning into Newlands which is Drove Road. Basically, go up until you can't any more and it's on the right on the A25 (coming from Woking end)

Where you coming from FF?

M25 clockwise to J10 A3.
Left towards Guildford, come off at Ripley (1st exit after about a mile which goes down an off  slip road (not the little cafe turn which is still in the on slip), take second exit on roundabout through Ripley town.
Stay on road about 3 miles till you get to a Shell garage on left. Turn left at the roundabout immediately after it towards Clandon
Stay on it through the windy bit up past the pretty church.
Cross the main road straight over at the traffic lights towards Dorking A25, road bears right then left, up the upflat for about a mile and at the top turn right.
Hey presto.
Who said I was anal?

Oi! Horley is the land of the free! Surrey is lucky to have this jewel in its catchment area. We could declare independence any time we want to but we realise it would have a negative impact on lesser areas....

I have this date in my diary and hope to join you. What time do you expect we will finish?

He'll probably never mince again after you've finished with him

Finish. Er, dunno, what time did we finish last time?

Thinks about 1pm?

30/09/2012 at 18:41

Think we were later than that before DB. We took our time! Got to factor in the falling off/punctures/cake at Box Hill/walking/laughing/embarrassing photo shoots etc. 

30/09/2012 at 18:59

Erm, could we say we will finish when we finish with no pressure of a finishing time .  Please.

If it's 30 miles (Barlos reckons it's longer), can we reasonably expect to be doing it in 3.5 hours if it's a beginners' ride?

No chance! I think last time we left at 10am, then we stopped for coffee and cake, then got back about 2 or 3 pm.

Am I right to read the 'no chance' to my latter comment as opposed to the earlier bit

Its for the latter!

30/09/2012 at 19:40

Thank feck for that!  I was just about to bite your head off

There is no pressure on finishing time. At all. 

Should I bring lights?
