Bike Ride - Sunday 10th August 2014

This month's ride will be this Sunday 10th August. This is the day of the big RideLondon cycle events, so our route has been chosen to give the opportunity to see some of the day's activities. In particular, our route has been designed to intercept the professional riders at the top of the hill climb on Ranmore Common. They do two circuits of this section of the course, so we will have two chances to see them pass. We will be meeting at the Hand & Spear, near Weybridge Station at 12:00 noon. This is two hours later than normal as the roads in Weybridge will be congested with riders on the London-Surrey 100 for most of the morning. We will cycle out through Cobham and Effingham up to Ranmore Common. There we will be able to find a prime position to watch the professional riders tackle the steep climb up from Westhumble to the top of Ranmore Common. Our return will take us back through Bookham, Effingham and across Ockham Common back to Weybridge. The route will be about 25 miles and is on-road all the way so any bike should be suitable. The full route map is here if you want more detail: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/497324908 If you want to come, just turn up at the Hand & Spear at 12 noon on Sunday. The next ride after this will be Sunday 12th October 2014. There will not be a ride in September.
