Wife giving me grief I can't stay out to play until 5pm so will go for a club ride instead as they finish by 1-2pm. We are riding up to Boxhill so if I see you I will give you all a wave. Enjoy your ride.

Morning Campers

Here's hoping the weather improves as it's still chucking it down and blowing a hoolie over here

Mr P has just gone out with the dogs and he is not impressed with life (or me!) at the moment for getting him into this!!

Another top day out. Thanks to Dusty for organising the ride and the weather.  I didn't manage Coombe or Chapel hill but still enjoyed the day.  Hill training needed perhaps. Great to see people again, Siggy you were missed. 

And Schmunks gets the gold star for getting up Coombe.

Great fun, even the slight detour to Whitedown hill.

Good pedaling all, and top ferret biscuits

Cheers Dustboy - good day out! The burgers at the end were definitely worth those hills!

Great day out, thanks dustboy. Definately a bit lumpier than my rides in the flatlands of Essex . Great turn out as well.

Thanks Dustboy - great ride out, super weather thank goodness and of course fantastic pirate company, some old friends and some new faces who I never did manage to put names to 

Like Soupy Coombe and Chapel defeated me but then I pretty much only train on the flat and am heading towards a coach barlos-esque figure which might also have something to do with it  

Can't think of anything I'd rather have been doing today

Thought of you all as we pedalled our MTBs marking out the Surrey Badger course.  Lovely day for it.

Schmunks, if you can get up Coombe you're well on your way to conquering pretty much any hill in this area

glad everyone had a great day! Sounds brilliant, well done DB!

What a great day yesterday.

Thanks to DB for arranging and his encouraging words at the bottom of each hill.

Thanks to Bassy for coming back down Coombe to check I was ok and to Ferret for being back end Charlie.

Enjoyed the hills I did and loved going up the other side of Coombe. I am definitely more of a long drag kinda girl

Had to walk down Crocknorth, but bombed down Staples Lane. Good job there was a hedge to break my fall :/

Top turnout yesterday, 16 people I think? Lot's of good humoured fun and banter. 31.48 miles and 772M climbing for those interested, so a pretty flat ride then.

Loved the TT bit at the end which made a nice change before the cool down winch back up to Newlands.

As ever, thanks to Ferret for tail end charlie (or I would have ended up miles away on the back of the Boxhill loop) and Ferret biscuits. Ferret biscuits alone are enough reason to turn out!

Great to see some new faces and old alike. At least three of which asked when there was going to be a hill. Watch out for next years rematch. We'll go over the other side of the A25 . Might ask Smiffy for some pointers 

Slag, was that you that nearly got catapulted to Edinburgh by the dickhead in the Volvo who clearly shat himself wishing he'd bought a car with ABS as he unceremoniously mounted the bank? 

Thanks for coming all, good effort by everyone and I think the "sprinters" little extra group worked quite well with an extra lap around Staples and a sojourn over to Whitedown and back (cheers Coach Bassos for leading that one).
