    Both routes look fine to me, the only real bit of road on mine is through Tilford, I think it's mostly byways and forest tracks. For a ride like this I like to make good use of the orange highlighted routes on OSM cycle maps via RWGPS (of which this is one), these always seem to be specifically chosen and uploaded by cyclists.

    I did consider going south through Thursley and Hankley but it can get pretty sandy as Ed mentions as well as busy with walkers. There is a really cool route round there though, round the bottom of Hankley Common. The whole place is a big crater looking thing where I think they filmed skyfall. Just a bit sandy though.

    Here's my attempt. Follows route 22 all the way to just beyond Bramley, then onto the Wey Navigation for 5km ish. Then some trails through Shackleford and Tilford, coming in at almost exactly 100m climbing for every 10km which is remarkably common for my rides round here. Absolutely no worries if it's not suitable. I'll probably ride on home from Frensham so not sure if you'd do an out and back or what?

    FYI Frensham Ponds can be busy and there's only a small area sectioned off for swimming. Can probably ride to the far end of the lake though and renegade it. The Barley Mow at Tilford could be a good back-up option as there's a river for paddling and often a game of cricket on.

    Just a series of bolts and spacers I think. The lever just about rests on the clamp which stops the mech slipping down the gears.

    It's lubed up and there's a nylon insert, it's all good. That bike is for sale actually if you want to try it out for yourself!

    Leather mudguard flap extenders. Not sure if it's a hack or a bodge but whatever.
