I know we are cyclists not gardeners but at this time of year (April-May) there is an opportunity to see the flowering shrub display at the ISABELLA plantation in Richmond Park (Broomfield Hill car park). The azaleas and rhododendrons are in full bloom in this glorious weather but won’t be for long. The display has […]

Dorking Deli

Whilst out on my solo ride today I had the misfortune to require the help of ‘Head for the Hills’ cycle shop in Dorking (part broken chain link). Whilst waiting I asked if they could tell me where the nearest Coffee Shop was. The said the The Dorking Deli was just a few doors down […]
