Brett just loves his steam railways so he devised this route to the Bluebell Railway in Sussex. This route takes you to the Horsted Keynes Station (RH17 7BB). There is a cafe on the station. The route is 75 miles and fairly hilly.
This route is a great introduction to riding with a group. It is fairly flat and usually a gentle ride with not too much traffic. Coffee and cake in Ripley and back through the lanes to Cobham then Esher.
Dr David likes to ride beyond the local hills of the North Downs! Nearly 80 miles with three significant climbs. Coffee is always at the Devil’s Punchbowl (great views) at Hindhead. Return via Pitch Hill and Coombe Lane climbs. – right click and ‘Save link as’
An alternative route to Windsor. 44 miles without any steep hills. Wiggle your way through Weybridge to Adlestone and out to Chobham. A fast descent into Windsor, through the town centre past the castle. Plenty of opportunities for coffee! A flat return leg via Staines and Laleham. – right click and ‘Save link as’

The DV Champagne Tour 2015 was even better than the wine itself. The trip was full of flavour and fun. Never a dull moment, whether it was chatting in the bar after a ride or over breakfast the next day. The banter was good humoured and I never felt pressured to do anything I didn’t […]
A route away from the usual Surrey routes (along with the Stockbridge route), but both easily accessible within a 50min drive. This one is undulating with 2-3 hills of note that each rise by between 250ft and 450ft. Cracking route. Lunch recommendation on this route is just off the route at The Fox in Bramdean which […]
