Rides for Explorers 2nd October

Through Woods and Fields to Bookham

Meet Twickenham Riverside by Eel Pie bridge 10.15. We head south crossing Littleworth Common, and Esher Common to Cobham and then a path across open fields and wooded Bookham Common.

After a pub lunch we return taking in Oxshott Heath and Princes Coverts.

About 35 miles avoiding main roads and using fairly smooth tracks – most bikes should cope.

Eight explorers started off , including two from the Netherlands – the fame of RCC rides is spreading – showing that any bike (including Dutch uprights with no gears and a satchel hanging from the handlebars) is suitable for our rides!

A bit of a hold-up over lunch but enjoying the sun in a Surrey beer-garden is not too stressful and we were back in the borough by 3.30 after a Golden Afternoon.
