Ten of us gathered at Milton Heath for some cross country riding with Newlands corner the anticipated refreshment stop. We enjoyed the trails though Broadmoor, Wotton Common, Holmbury St Mary and onward though Peaslake. Brave leadership was displayed here as we passed the  cherished Peaslake shop without stopping!
It became apparent that Newlands was a step too far timewise, and a nearer tea stop was found in Gomshall. All was well except two of our number got delayed, missed the turn, and continued to Abinger Hammer  for refreshment at the Village store. Everyone was reunited and we enjoyed a brisk ride though Deerleap Wood and Westcott to return to Milton Heath.
Many thanks to Fran for leading us though so many excellent trails.
