Tomorrow is the first of the planned Molesey BBT “escalator” rides where on the last Sunday of the month we do a longer ride. Each month the ride gets longer starting in January with a 70 mile ride. My original plan was to go to the Devils Punch Bowl but that is an out and back ride with no opportunity for riders to cut bits out if the going gets tough.
An alternative 70 miler, with the advantage that it is a loop
offering those who don't want to do the distance or can't keep up the
opportunity to cut bits out is:
Molesey -> Esher -> Oxshot -> Letherhead -> Headley -> Little
Switzerland -> Box hill zig zags -> Betchworth -> Newdigate -> Rusper ->
Clarks Green -> Ockley -> Forset Green -> Ewhurst -> Shere -> East
Clandon -> Ockham -> Cobham -> Esher -> Molesey.
In particular the loop down through Little Switzerland and up Box Hill is very optional all be it a bit of a laugh. Also if you go via Holmbury St Mary instead of via Ockley that cuts out the hill into Shere and a few miles to get you to the Cafe a bit quicker.
I doubt we will be back by 12 even with a 7:30 start.
