The next Elmbridge Cycle Group ride will be this Sunday 14th November. It's time to go East. Leaving from outside the Hand and Spear at Weybridge Station, we'll head for Esher, Claygate and possible get as far as Malden Rushett for lunch before heading back through Oxshott and Cobham. The route will be about 20 miles taking 3 hours or so depending on the pace of the group. The going will be mainly on-road although we'll try to avoid busy roads as much as possible. If you want to come along just turn up on Sunday at 11:00am outside the Hand and Spear. Woking Cycle Group have asked me to let you know about a shared space consultation that is currently being carried out there. The issue is permission to cycle through Woking Town Centre. If you support this then please fill in the form here: http://eforms.woking.gov.uk/default.aspx/RenderForm/?F.Name=Ymq6VwNTU5N so that Woking Borough Council know your views. There's a discussion of the issue here: http://www.cyclewoking.org.uk/aboutus/news?item=00004CC53820.C0A801BA.00... Please do this before December 5th which is the closing date for this consultation.

The next Elmbridge Cycle Group ride will be this Sunday 10th October. We'll be heading West(ish). Leaving from outside the Hand and Spear at Weybridge Station, we will start by negotiating Walton Bridge and the back streets of Shepperton. Then we take a bearing north-west to zig-zag between several reservoirs, and right across the middle of one of them, before reaching our lunchtime destination of Wraysbury. On our return we'll follow the line of the railway back towards Staines and then the towpath along the river to Chertsey and then to Weybridge. The route will be about 25 miles taking 4 hours or so depending on the pace of the group. The going will be mainly quiet roads on the way out and mostly good quality off-road cycle paths on the way back.
