Henfold Lakes open

Six riders braved the remaining winds which while still quite strong were not dangerous to cycle Henfold Lakes via Epsom and for a change Walton on the Hill. Going via Walton meant that we got a run at the descent of Pebble Coombe which would have been brilliant had I not had to slow due to the cars insisting on sticking to the speed limit, for which they get my praise, but meant that I topped out at 44mph. I'm not sure I can get the old tourer to go much faster as the 52 x 14 top gear is just not big enough for much faster. (if my maths is right 44mph is 147rpm).
Henfold lakes was open and so breakfast was had and we returned via the hill past Polesden Lacy with only a slight delay when we had to clamber under a fallen tree that was blocking the road.
