Wednesday Rides, 19th October

You will no doubt have seen that Ron Richardson’s funeral will take place on Wednesday, 11.45 at Woking Crematorium. I have spoken with the family, who have encouraged us to continue with our normal Wednesday ride, just as Ron would have wished. They have also invited all those members who knew Ron to attend the funeral, and afterwards gather at Il Rustico, Chobham.  Their preference would be that we wear Club colours, and certainly normal cycling attire. In view of this, I have changed the published plans for the rides on that day.  The Micheldever ride for the 3’s and 4’s will remain for those who wish to do that, being a joint ride led by Phil Gasson.  I will be at Pirbright at 9.45 and will lead those who wish to attend the funeral on a short morning ride.  For those who did not know Ron that well, an

Tour of the Hills

In my opinion, yesterday provided the very best example of what it means to be involved in a Club such as West Surrey, with club members working together to put on a truly exceptional event.  The Tour of the Hills is our major event of the year, and a few weeks before the event there were a few challenges to overcome.  However, true club spirit prevailed, and the combined work of very many people enabled the Club to put on an event of which we can all be proud.  The feedback from entrants was consistently positive, not to say effusive, with one seasoned campaigner saying that it was the best Audax event that he had ever experienced.  Don Gray was the mainstay and worked through the year, but thanks go to all those who helped in so many ways, particularly with the catering and the marshalling, both of which were

Grade 3 and 4 ride tomorrow, 20th July

As a result of very limited response, I have decided to cancel the planned Downs Link ride for tomorrow.  It will be replaced by a “normal” road ride, to make the most of the good weather and enjoy the sea breezes at Bosham. The ride will be for both grades 3 and 4; there will be leaders for each.  If you do not wish to join Peter Hackman with his early start from Guildford (see earlier post) then you will need to get to Stansted House tea room (PO9 6DX) by 10.30/10.45.  There are various options; you may wish to drive to Stansted House (open until 6.00), or other local places such as Petersfield (the car park at Heath Pond, SU755226, is free but there is a height barrier), or take the train to Rowlands Castle and cycle to Stansted House; there will be no leader meeting the train, and

Wednesday’s grade 3 and 4 ride

The planned ride this Wednesday for the grades 3 and 4 is advertised as being a mainly off road ride down the Downs Link to Shoreham.  This was suggested by a club member as providing some further variation in our programme, and with the weather set fair and looking as though it will remain hot, the section along the old railway line will no doubt provide some welcome shade.  However, I recognise that such a ride will not appeal to all, and therefore Peter Hackman has kindly arranged an alternative on road ride for the grade 4’s with coffee at Stansted House (PO9 6DX) , and thereafter via the Itchenor Ferry to Dell Quay; should be glorious but take sun screen.  Please see his e-mail for further details, or contact me direct. It may be that no-one will favour the Downs Link ride, so if you plan to attend that

Tour of the Hills 21st August – Marshals required

The Tour of the Hills on 21st August is our major event of the year, and the one for which the support of members is essential.  One basic requirement is to have sufficient marshals to man all the required points along the route.  I therefore require volunteers for this role, please contact me as soon as you can if you are able to help, e-mailing me on  It is not necessary to have previous experience, indeed it would be nice to have wider support, perhaps from newer members, and not rely solely on those who have contributed so much over previous years.  When volunteering, please specify your preference e.g. early, late control; location – closer to Guildford or further away; the earlier you volunteer the more likely it will be that I will be able to accommodate your preferences.  Naturally, the more volunteers I receive, the lighter will be
