35 mile Reliability Ride

A few riders undertook the 35 mile Reliability Ride on Sunday (9.4.2017), and with the sun shining, took off from Godalming to the Village Shop, Kirdford via Plaistow.  Unfortunately I slipped on my stairs at home and twisted my knee on Friday so decided to drive out and meet the group as they went by and to beat them to a coffee at Kirdford.

Plaistow, Angela leads from the front.

A thumbs up so all’s going well.

Yellow is the colour……

With the sun and the wind at their backs it’s a return to Godalming via Dunsfold.

Centurion Way Update

The route from Chichester to West Dean was extended last year to reach the main A286 passing under the road but ended at a fence. The South Downs National Park announced today that new steps have now been built with a bike ramp to reach Motor Road, which leads to the main road, opposite the pub at West Dean village.

50 and 35 mile Reliability Rides 9th April 2017

Over the years I have received a number of adverse comments about the fact that these rides finish about 12 miles from where they start. A few have also commented that they like the ride to Kirdford but are not so keen on the ride from there to Holmbury St Mary. As a trial to gauge reaction, this year’s rides will finish back at the Crown Court car park, Godalming where they start . If you can’t see me outside at the start it will probably be because I’m in the Jack Phillips having breakfast. Click below to download route sheets and TCX files for the new routes.
