Meet at Twickenham Riverside by 10.30.
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 !
