Rides for Explorers – Box Hill ; Sunday 26th January

Meet Twickenham Riverside – by Eel Pie bridge 10.00.

Box Hill Jan 2020 (2)

Our traditional post-turkey jaunt but a bit later this year to avoid clashing with Kingston CC rides. On/off road quiet and scenic route to Box Hill then a steady climb to the viewpoint and lunch in NT Cafe at the top (as the pub we used to patronise is now a trendy wine-bar). Enjoy  a switchback descent taking us most of the way home. About 40 miles in total. Better bring lights but expect to get back well before 4.

Route (May be modified if we get much more rain. )

6 of us met up and , apart from a brief light shower had good , if slightly muddy, ride across Horton Country Park and Ashstead Common. After a quick snack at the top of Box Hill we headed back with the wind behind us and got back through Kingston around 2pm ahead of the worst of the threatened rain.
