Carole’s September Blog

Dear All,

Lights aren’t just for night.  At the last Pub night, Barbara reminded us of that. She was talking about going down areas where trees form a tunnel and if you are cycling through them in the day, cars can’t see you. So it is a good idea to actually have lights on at all time of the day.           

Some of you may wish to sign up for the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 next year. You can enter the ballot now.  For more information go to 

We have two interesting rides on the agenda. Next Sunday 15 September, is our normal social ride with a twist. Karen Smith will be leading it. We are to cycle a route that she will lead and everyone will need to pay attention where we go and what we may pass by! The quiz will be given out at coffee/tea break. All the questions are in order of the route we have cycled. It’s not too hard only a bit of fun. We will meet near the children’s playground in Woking Park and leave at 2:00. So show up and have some exercise and some fun. Karen’s mobile number should you need to contact her on the day is 07745 208838.

Then on 29 September we will be having our all-day ride. It will be led by Barbara Rossouw and Chris Jeggo. The plan is to cycle to Dorking, probably stopping for coffee along the way. Then it will be across to the rolling hills south of Dorking and stopping for lunch before arriving in Reigate where we will catch a train back to Guildford and then a ride back from Guildford to Woking…or a train ride if the trains are running. If you would like to come, please let Barbara know so she can update you on developments and she won’t leave anyone behind at the start. Her email address The meeting place will the usual one near the children’s playground in Woking Park but the departure time will be 8:45. Barbara’s mobile is 07742 809031. For both these rides. Please remember to bring a spare inner tube for your bike should  it be required.

Pub night will be 24 September at 7:30 at The Sovereigns on Guildford Road, Woking.

Happy cycling
