SADR Ride on 26 March 2017

This was a right old ‘suffer-fest’ for me: I mean, 89 miles and it’s still only March, not to mention only my third ride of the year! Paddy and Chris – sorry no photos – sensibly headed home after coffee, but that would still have been about 60 miles. Good to see Dane at coffee too, which was at a café in Alresford. We – that is Clive, Dave, Keith and yours truly then headed south east to cross the South Downs bound for lunch at Rowlands Castle. Clive deserves a medal for ensuring that the journey home – he peeled off at Liphook of course – was as flat as it could be, and to Dave and Keith for their excellent company; if it wasn’t for them I think I’d still be lying in a ditch somewhere along the way. There’s no doubt it was a lovely ride, and

Typecast after a couple of blogs… Saturday/Sunday 14th/15th Nov

Julian writes…. (with photos by Mark Waters) With good intention I don the lycra to ride over to the AGM in Godalming but have to clear some of the leaves and other garden rubbish before I set off.

Sunday Ride with the Sunday Riders ~ 13 April 2014

Another superb day of gorgeous spring weather and a fine route from Guildford to coffee at Newdigate, then lunch at RSPB Wigginholt (otherwise known as Pulborough Brooks) before the ride home. Once the legs got going it was brilliant and the previous Wednesday’s ‘suffer-fest’ no doubt helped to firm the legs up for this 124km ride, taken at a slightly slower pace; and what a difference that makes! Thanks, Clive, for leading it and sorry we lost you for a while. For a gpx of the route, see http://www.strava.com/activities/129889999
