Box Hill Ride – 6th June

Meet at Twickenham Riverside by 10.30.

We ride through Horton Country Park and Ashstead Common to Leatherhead then through the Mole Gap on an off-road path.

The ascent of Box Hill will be accompanied by downland flowers and rewarded by the view. After a pub lunch the ride back is an exhilarating   downhill roller-coaster.

Four of us did this ride and one orchid was spotted on the way up Box Hill (I ride slowly). Not the best day for a view from the top but it is always pretty spectacular. A short shower during lunch in the garden of the Hand in Hand was fended off by an umbrella and we were back by 3.30, despite your leader taking a wrong turn in Kingston !  (sorry no photos – camera battery flat)
