It appears as if I have a day pass for Easter Monday. Does anyone fancy a rideout. Surrey start, no firm plans. A few thoughts?

  • Downs Link path (MTB)
  • Surrey Cycle Way
  • Death on the Downs (all the hills between boxhill and Ranmore up/down each one)

The pub at Shoreham did a very good club sandwich as I remember.

I may be able to join in for a short bit. Limited to about an hour at the moment but it would be fun to get out.

There are hills between Boxhill and Ranmore???

Oops I meant Newalnds corner.

Have done most of them in one go before but quite fancy a shot at doing all of them.

  • Newlands - both sides
  • Whitedown & Staples Lane
  • Coombe Lane /Crocknorth
  • Ranmore/Dorking
  • Ranmore/Polseden
  • Boxhill
  • Maybe Shere Rd as well

That's a cracking ride and as near as dammit the beginners guide ride but I can't manage all of it yet. Newlands for a burger after, maybe....

Speak VERY NICELY to Ferret for the best surprise half way!!

Only difference to the beginners ride is that my version all are done both ways up and down on both north and south of the downs. I did contemplate riding them all from the mole valley gap with loops getting larger for every lap.

  • Up ranmore/down back of ranmore - back to A24
  • Up whitedown/down crocknorth - back to A24
  • ......
  • up newland down back of Newlands back to A24

Would be a fun day out.

No way am I fit enough to tackle the Surrey Hills but I might survive the Downslink

I may escape to come play although I do still hate hills.
