cycling in Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire and beyond…..

This weekend’s events

I hope you are all now well prepared for a strenuous weekend.

On Saturday it is the Phil Hampton Memorial Ride, organised by North Hampshire CTC, starting in Medstead at 10am.  Phil lived in Farnborough, was a keen member of Audax UK, and often rode with us, being a key member of the WSDA team that was highly placed in the CTC’s DAs’ Touring Competition:  9th in 1989, 2nd in 1990 and winners in 1991-3.  Sadly, Phil was killed in 2002 by a lorry driver who was under the influence of drugs.  The entry fee for this ride in his memory is a donation of at least £5 to the Cyclists’ Defence Fund.  There is a choice of routes, 30 or 50 miles, see  I am planning to do the 50, which ranges over the scenic Hampshire lanes to the south, out to Bishops Waltham and Hambledon.  A treat!

On Sunday we have our own ‘Bicycle Icycle’, starting from Mark’s house in Godalming at 9.30.  Slightly shorter, but a bit more climbing.  Details from our events page:  Two treats in a single weekend.  Wow!

  1. Looking forward to seeing you there Chris, sadly weather not looking as nice as we had last Saturday. I know of a few others who’ve signed up so might be a good turnout from West Surrey.
