Saturday 12th January - Circling around Gatwick

Post by wazza » Sat Jan 12, 2019 3:41 pm

7 turned up in pitch black 7:15am with Barry dishing out latest Berrylands pink gifts. Out through Epsom Downs and Betchworth way stopping at the railway crossing. Barry peeled off near Horley. Roads were generally good with some new tarmac sections.

On the positives 62 miles completed which is unusually high for this time of year and we will all be the better for it ?
Not good at all was my backup plan for old garmin route that didn’t have wayward turn off’s on ( my excuse in anyway). As a result we circled back towards Horley recovering familiar territory – Apologies all for extending ride and encroaching more on valuable family time than planned by an extra hour or so. Four of us managed coffee and sausage butties at The Walnut.

Riders out: Barry, Fran, Gareth, Geoff, Mark, New Old Dave, Warwick with an average of 14.9 mph

Higher mileage than I needed but a good ride.

Quite pleased to see we had 60 miles in the legs this early in the year.

Sorry I couldn’t make coffee.

Thanks

Mark

Ditto Mark’s comments - pleased I could make the 60 miles, but I am feeling it today!! No idea how mark did that without food.
Thanks for organising, Warwick, and for getting us back - I’ll probably never be as happy to see pebble hill as I was yesterday!
See you next week
David

It's high time that Gareth (having failed to choose his own avatar) has one selected for him. I think he might like this one.

There are still some regular members without avatars. Maybe the administrator could assign them suitable ones....
