Tour of Briton Epsom Downs

Ian Wilkinson
Ian used to be in the UK MTB squad with Tim in the early 2000's so I said hello!

Taking a close look at Wiggo's  bike!

MTB Ride Thursday 19th September

Hi All

The weather forecast looks wet for Thursday so I think we should cancel the ride.

Hope everyone enjoyed our summer evenings, as much as I did!
Future rides will be weather permitting, and will be shorter in distance.
Will keep you posted.


ps Planning some time to ride the Grand Union Canal into London via Little Venice.
Meet at Kingston, ride will take in Bushey Park, Crane river, Hounslow Heath then onto the canal.
Back via Hyde Park, Chelsea Harbour, River Thames, Putney, Wimbledon Common - finishing at Wetherspoons New Malden for a well earned beer! Lunch on the canal, coffee at Putney, beers at New Malden. Ride distance 38miles.
Probably an alternative Saturday ride!

Consolation Trophy to be held by the highest placed rider on Hcp who has won no other Club Trophy.

Usual HQ as in the evening 10’s - Inholm's Lane Car Park

We ride as a group (sort of) to the start on the A24 at Mill Lane, South Holmwood 1.7 miles from HQ, all up hill

Start: Just in Mill Lane and continue south on A24 for 4.8 miles to 2nd Rbt, Clarks Green, were turn (10 turn) and retrace north to Beare Green rbt were LEFT into A29. for aprox 8 miles (through Ockley) to bear LEFT onto A281.
The next part is easy to go wrong. There are a number of rbts, keep on A281 /A264 towards the A24. (Do not go into the trading estate on your left)
To Farthing Hill rbt A24 junction. Bear left down slip road to join A24 North Bound. Keep on A24 to
Finish at railway bridge 1 mile south of start and just past the entrance to Beare Green village.

I'm guessing that the plan will be to go for coffee/breakfast to Tanhouse Farm after the event. Lisa

SCCU 25 Sept 8.2013

Thanks to Joe & Rachel for marshaling today. Thanks also to Frank for timekeeping and all the other officials helpers, etc. It seems that Ray did not beat his best time this year to create yet another 87yr old Vet record. Thanks also to Brian P for the handicapping. Photo taken in Broadbridge Heath HQ. Simon having been an early starter had flown the nest but never the less did a PB. Commiserations also to Alex K for DNS though I know not why? It seems that I won the club H/C in this event - I suppose it was because I did a PB (that is since I joined KPRC, in 1963 my PB was 1.0.23 to the best of my memory - I never did beat the hour much to my regret) - so as far as I am concerned after a 23yr gap from cycling to get married and have 3 kids - I think my 1.12.32 is a PB. Picture shows Ray along with Joe & Rachel doing a sterling job marshaling!
