Super Surrey Singletrack (In September)

A long awaited return to one of Muddy@rsers favourite locations -the wonderful Surrey Hills.

Before its gets all claggy here’s an opportunity for swoopy fun singletrack, with a few more technical goodies thrown in too. We’ll be heading out to the less travelled Winterfold wood for a some new (to Muddy@rse bits and pieces). Then over to Holmbury Hill for some of the classics, ending up with the show-piece grinfest trail that is Barry Knows Best.

Distance: about 20 miles, but will depend on how we get on, mechanicals, messing about breaks etc etc.

Time: Expect to be out for about 4 hours. Please be self sufficient regarding food. Yes there’s a shop in Peaslake that will sell you yummy things before the ride, but we’re not planning on getting back to Peaslake til the end of the ride.

Terrain: This ride features a mixture of terrain, including quite a lot of singletrack. Some of it is a little bit steeper and more technical than South Downs rides, but its all walkable and you’ll get fair warning of any tricky bits.

Time: 10 for 10:30 roll

Meeting: Walking Bottom car park Here clicky. Note the car park has been expanded (yay!) as it often filled up completely on Sundays. Despite this, please park nice and close so we can get everyone in and still leave space for other folks to park.

Other stuff: We’ll bring the tea and coffee and you bring the cake. We do have spare mugs but if you can bring one that’d be appreciated (we can keep for you for next time too). If you’d like to help then flasks of hot water are much appreciated smile.gif

Thanks – hope to see you there!

I was at Holmbury and Pitch recently, the Sandy soil holds up very well, you can ride there all through winter and it still rides well.

Barry Knows Best is looking a bit ragged in places these days, it gets a lot of traffic and in some places the exposed roots make the trail very rough. Some of the small, steep, roll ins at the start of the trail have got very ragged (and even steeper) with all the wear. Still fun though, hope you guys have a good ride, I’m off to Friston forest today…
