    Regular Thursday Off Road Night Ride Summer only

    Post  Nigel E5 on Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:59 am

    There will be a regular ride every Thursday evening from this week until early October.
    The rides start by the tree in the middle of Crown Court Car Park.
    They vary in length as the day light gets longer 12 to 18 miles but could be 25+ mid summer.
    Social pace.
    Bridleways and single track.
    To all points of the compass depending who's leading.

    Duh forgot to mention start time!

    Meet At 7-15pm Ride away 7-30 Always finishing at a local pub

    Not Official an Velo Club ride as many others are not members.

    Contact is Nigel Mathias on 07774 168819

    Nice to meet you Wynne. Sorry I couldn't stop at MH. I used to ride out from Guildford, have 2 or 3 pints and then ride home but my wife wasn't happy about 12.30/1.00am finishes after my accident. (Me? I used to arrive home very happy!) See you soon

    Thursday evening ride

    Post  max on Tue Jun 23, 2009 11:18 pm

    Hi,

    Nothing like a list of questions to get started with.
    Is the Thursday evening ride happening this week - 25th June?
    Not been before, am I welcome to join in?
    Do you tend to be out riding late enough to need off road lights or has it all adjourned to the pub by then?
    And lastly, where do things tend to finish up?

    Thanks, Max.

    Hi Max
    Nice to hear from you, in reply to your list of questions!

    Yes the ride is on this week.

    You are welcome of course. the group nearly always 10+ strong with a varying skill and fitness level, pace is social, we always wait and have a head count.

    We are out late enough for lights we do tend to ride further during the light evenings up to 25 miles depending on which direction we go and who leads.

    And we vary the pub stop at the end could be the Stag Eashing, jolly farmer Bramley, merry harriers Hambledon, white star Witley (rarely), or the wool pack Elsted.
    There are nearly always some riders who do not stop and ride straight back to Godalming.

    I would say that this weeks ride will be long, however it should stay light enough to ride with out really fancy off road lights until 10pm, by then we should be in the pub!

    If the weather stays warm next week will be a swim ride in great pond Frensham.

    Hi Mark

    And there's me saying we always have a head count('Embarassed')

    Not sure yet, could be Hindhead, or we haven't done Loxwood direction for a few years due to the perma clag, depends if Chris turns out. Winterfold is always a favourite but I was up there last night, that singletrack is riding so good.
