    Post  On_One_Ti_456 on Wed Mar 25, 2009 2:21 pm

    This Sundays ride will take us over towards Frensham Ponds. It won’t be a particularly technical ride, though it will be a bit longer than the usual Sunday rides (approx 26miles taking 3-4hrs). The pace will be ‘social’, though we may need to keep an eye on the time given the distance, but the route is flexible if we fall behind.

    Meeting Place: Godalming railway station
    Timing: Meet 0845 for 0900 BST departure (DON’T FORGET THE CLOCKS GO FORWARD THIS WEEKEND) sunny
    Duration: Long (approx 3-4hrs)
    Difficulty: Blue/Moderate (expect heavy sand around Frensham)
    Ascent: some short, sharp climbs
    Tea Stop: Café stop half-way round at Frensham Ponds
    Average Speed/Pace Style: Social Pace (no-one will be left behind!)
    Distance: Approx 26 miles
    Route: To Frensham Ponds, via Puttenham and Crooksbury and back
    Ride Organiser: Greg Driver

    Any queries regarding the ride then PM me or post on here.
