Today was the 1st Winter Club ride of 2010. Noel Manchee, Mark Bixley and myself met in Epsom and for a change, in bright, sunny and much warmer conditions.
After the heavy rain yesterday, the roads through Cobham and out to Horsley were quite flooded and snow still piled at the roadsides on the hilltops. Mark showed some impressive new year strength over the Newlands ridge and beyond putting the others under pressure after the Christmas excesses. Onwards through Shere, Ewhurst and back through Capel, Dorking, Leatherhead and back in Epsom at 12.40. 50m - 16.8mph
Join us next week Epsom, Spread Eagle (Leicester Bowden) - 9.30am, depart at 9.45. Pace and stop to suit those out. Hope to see you then!
