First "long" ride of the year.

The 70 mile ride went off with out a hitch, well for the three that actually did it it went without a hitch. Though with hindsight the choice of route was a bit harsh. Four big hills (that is big for Surrey) took a lot out of riders this early in the year. Though the ability to skip sections and re-group was used to great effect reducing the hills and the total distance for one rider.
While cold and especially as we descended Little Switzerland, icy, the day was spectacular. A clear day near perfect cycling conditions and a good breakfast at the Lucky Duck in Shere made for a perfect start to the day.
Next week is the Redmon Reliability run which we have done for the last few years and can be challenging if you join the faster groups.
