Nine of us met at Godalming Station at 9am and the weather was mild and dry, so a happy group set off southwards to coffee at Wisborough Green. Cyclists everywhere as usual and loads at the café – luckily we got seats in this tiny but delightful stopover – the coffee’s good too! Don Jones turned up to see us – he wasn’t riding owing to a neck issue; Don, you need to be more careful with that violin playing!
Next we headed east towards Southwater and then Horsham for one of our favourite cafés – the one in the Park, where the food and drink is very reasonably priced: and what a change that makes! I reckon you need a good £15 to cover coffee and a modest lunch – today I got away with about £11. Good to see Paul Holmes here but he didn’t stay long with us, so I never got a chance to chat: sorry, Paul!
And so back homewards via Ewhurst. The group split soon after, some heading westwards and others continuing through Shamley Green and Wonersh and back to Guildford and Godalming.
My total distance was a respectable 55 miles. Here’s the route and, to view it in more details click here.
