Dorking Today - Thursday

Well, that's the Road route up! (GPX routes on the right). Whilst Tony and Mark were off pounding the tarmac, I went off to check some of the off road route. The ground's held up pretty well despite all the rain, in fact it's washed quite a bit of mud off the routes. This does mean that sometimes its better to ride in the puddles than through the mud either side!!!

A couple of tips for novice riders:-

  • Make sure you have a spare set of brake pads - I went through a rear pair today!!
  • Go carefull when going downhill - it can get a bit slippery.

Our pre-entry numbers are the best yet, so please get there early. If we fill up the car park then you'll have to park on the surrounding streets.

See you there.
