G2 – Newdigate (Henfold Lake Fisheries Cafe)
Myself, Martin R, Richard B, Chris M, Jo-Jo, Adam D, Matt W, Bert H & Russ K.
9 of us departed the G shortly after 9am heading off via PolHill, Pilgrims, Tandridge, Horley etc and made our way to Newdigate.
As advertised the pace was higher than usual. With the majority of the group being G1 riders the…[Read more]
G2 – to Wakehurst Place Garden Ctr (Cafe) (Ardingly).
Led by Hamish 13 of us split into 2 groups and ascended Cudham Lane. Often temporarily coming back together as one large group via Gangers we made our way heading out via Tandridge and took in the usual route to Tulleys and onwards to the top of Turner’s Hill. Instead of making the turn home…[Read more]
G1 – Aylesford Priory.
With a very large gathering at the G we headed off with 8 of us as G1. Also at the G was a very strong G2 who headed off shortly after us.
G1 today included myself, Jomo, (Jomo’s friend Ryan), Martin, Nolan Wilkens, Paul Delves, Simon Heaton, Chris Moss – picking up Johnny Edwards and Steve Rodgers on way to Otford.…[Read more]
G2 to Tulleys Farm ended up being to Ardingly.
10 of us met at the G intending to split G1 & 2, but with a 7/10 split we just made 2×5 G2 groups.
Heading up the second group to leave the G our group worked well taking in some nicely resurfaced roads at pace.
Taking slightly different routes we ended up at a very busy Tulleys farm. Quickly…[Read more]
G2 – Staplehurst loop
Leaving the G @ 08:30 were myself, Simon Heaton, Dave Barker, Martin Rowling, Hamish Brown, Nolan Wilkens and James Heppleston. (I hope I didn’t miss anyone).
After heading out to Col Du Knatts via Eynesford we soon found ourselves descending Exedown where we met Russ K.
Heading out via Wrotham to Ryarsh where we were joined…[Read more]
Basically what Martin said.
Great ride, group, weather and coffee stop.
A decent pace outbound with some rusty thru and off skills on display, but I’m sure we’ll nail them as the weeks go by.
Throwing a new hill into the mix was interesting with Station Road to Woldingham really testing your pacing skills.
Well done everyone and a good ride…[Read more]
G2 Sunday ride
With most of G2 riding Monday’s sportive three of us being Richard Bingham, Nolan Wilkens and I took in our ever popular Tulley’s farm circuit. It was a case of be careful what you ask for, as my published fast ride was exactly what we got straight off up Cudham Lane. With lungs trying to warm up I hung onto the guys wheels and fin…[Read more]
I saw your premises in Kelvin Parade at the weekend. It will be a good location and easy parking for bike drop offs etc…
Looking forward to dropping in to meet you, to buy some bits and also enjoy some coffee/cake.
Cheers and welcome to the club
G2 Hartfield loop.
9 of us set off from the G along Cudham Lane, down Hogtrough and up Brastead where we met Steve Rodgers and Johnny Edwards at the top before descending Toys Hill. We soon arrived at the foot of Kidds Hill (AKA The Wall) one of the favourite ascents in the area where the group spread out a bit but regrouped at the top. It’s…[Read more]
G2 lingfield loop Sunday 14th.
With plummeting temperatures and light snow an hour before 7-8 of us met at the G for an early 8:30 ride start, Chris Dines led the group off via Rushmore to Lingfield and back via Edenbridge, Tatsfield, Pilgrims Way and Hogtrough.
A good ride with great company. Martin & I detoured after Hogtrough for a…[Read more]
Welcome to the club Jade.
G2 ride – Sunday 13th.
As Neale says, great ride with great group. Once we got over the outbound lumps and onto the flat lanes the pace picked up nicely.
Very nice coffee (thanks John) @ the BoatHouse in Yalding.
Strong gusts of wind made it interesting at times, but overall it was very pleasant out.
The G2 Yalding Marty Pellow ride – AKA The Wet Wet Wet ride.
With some rather contradicting weather forecasts we met at the G.
With different forecasts our collective attire ranged from almost summer gear to almost full on winter gear.
Ably led by Adie, the G2 group of the day consisted of Hamish, Dave B, Martin, Simon H and myself – later met by…[Read more]
Great turnout from Avanti at the Bexley CC Reliability ride.
Rumour has it we had around 30 members, it was certainly an impressive site in the club house and in the car park when embarking on the ride.
With so many riders and others leaving at close intervals we formed quite large groups in the first 5 or so miles, but once the natural split…[Read more]
