Olympic Route in Surrey

We have a look at the Olympic Road Cycling route through Surrey. – but only do Box Hill once so only (!) 50 miles.

Six of us met at  Bushy Park Fountain Car Park 10.00 am.

After passing through Weybridge we stopped for coffee at  Broadlands to get us over the North Downs. Quite a climb then hairy descent in Coombe Bottom.  Lunch in The Compasses at  Gomshall on a table by the Tillingbourne.

That, and the break,  helped with the undulating busy road into Dorking and on up Box Hill. The view at the top got a Wow but there were no objections to the suggestion of an easier way back via Headley and Epsom Common.  Back into Kingston about 5.15.
