• So to mark the official start of spring I'm organising a guided Surrey Hills MTB ride on Saturday March 21st. Technically the equinox is Friday 20th but obviously Saturday will be better for the purposes of a ride.

    Plan will be to meet at Peaslake Village Stores at around 11am. This can start later if people wish as I know if you are travelling by train to Gomshall (the nearest train station to Peaslake) getting there by that time might be difficult.

    General outline of the ride will be to ride Holmbury Hill and Pitch Hill/Winterfold. All are welcome to join if you have a safe, maintained mountain bike, a helmet and some off-road riding experience. All skill levels welcome (within reason, if you're a complete beginner this might not be the best ride to start on), I won't take you down anything super steep or with unavoidable jumps/gaps (unless you want to). If you haven't ridden the Surrey Hills before and want to see where the good trails are this is a good starting point. Even though I don't ride the area regularly any more I did used to, for a number of years, and I still go there at least twice a year so my familiarity with the trail network is pretty good.

    Expect natural, fun, flowy singletrack; punchy climbs; cheese straws and a good few hours of riding.
