Christmas Lunch Rides

A happy group

Cast your mind back several months and recall those lovely meals you enjoyed with your cycling pals. Here are a few reminders.

Firstly there was the Sunday All Day Riders’ annual Christmas lunch at the Blue Ship.

A well fed, thus happy group of cyclists!


Guildford & Godalming Wayfarers Ride ~ 19 October 2014

It would have been difficult to find an excuse not to get out today. Mid-October and it’s shorts and short sleeves mode still – wonderful! That said, there was plenty of water around and care was needed on slippery roads. Nevertheless, the countryside was looking quite wonderful even though light levels were low, leading to some pretty fuzzy photos.

People out were Peter the leader, another Peter, Geoff, Hilary, Chris Jeggo and Roger; then at the Rural Life Centre cafe, we found Sue, Angela and David.

People went in various directions after coffee and giant slabs of fruit cake. After intending to go one way, I ended up going another and so endured the climb up Beacon Hill Road to Hindhead, to be rewarded by that lovely descent round the Punchbowl and down to Brook. A fabulous half day ride -only about 47kms in my case but just right; hope everyone else enjoyed the rest of their rides and thanks, Peter, as always, for leading.
