Leaving the Woodman, Ashtead

Sunday 6th November, A bright Sunny start, with increasing Cloud as the day progressed, with a late Shower to Dampen the mood, saw 18 Cyclists, leave via Lower Marsh, Berrylands, New Malden, Motspur park, the Joseph Hood Park, West Sutton,- where the first visit from the ‘P fairy’ and a failed repair, led to 1 person saying farewell & heading for the Train,- Cheam Village, Nonsuch Park, East Ewell, Epsom, Ashtead Park to Ashtead for lunch at ‘the Woodman’, after some confusion with 1 order, a slightly delayed restart via Leatherhead, Fetcham, where a ‘strategic decision’,led to a shorter, but slightly hillier route, Stoke D’Abernon, Cobham to Claremont Lakes for Tea & BP, then Esher, Hinchley wood- where the 2nd visit from the ‘P Fairy’, and a very gallant John E willing to help the victim, the remainder of group continued in the by now steady Rain-, Long Ditton, Surbiton to Kingston. Total 29 Miles, 2 Punctures.

Thanks to Will & Jon for acting as Back markers and others for marking corners, also thanks to John for the BP.
