- is it raining in Surrey Hills/Peaslake?
Was out there Tuesday – trails in transmission / pad destruction mode then. It’s rained ever since, so expect wet with added wetness and a bit of even wetter thrown in for good measure. Great if you like your brake pads short lived, your chain graunchy and a bit of “hey look! A tree root. Wow. Sideways baby!” action.
Oh and some of the puddles smell stagnant.

But how far would you get on the road Mattjg? Redhill last night was gridlocked due to the floods, and several roads have suffered upheaval with the tarmac being trashed. Slightly ironic that the council dweebs spent all last summer “improving” the trails around here, laying hardcore, only for the past few weeks worth of rain [well Sunday and Wednesday really] going and scouring them all out again. Lots of gulleys re-appearing. Going to make the climbs interesting again at the very least.Posted 7 years ago
Wife and I took the dog for a walk from Peaslake to top of Pitch yesterday morning along the main path where the logging has been taking place as per geetee1972’s photo…it was great fun, mud almost up to the top of wellies, took us about an hour. There’s mud that looks quite innocuous then you’d step on it and your foot would disappear and you have to get help to get out. Highly recommended…going to take the kids up there

Thanks for your replies. As I got closer (on my way home from work) I decided to give it a miss (having read some of the above). Went food shopping instead. 😥
This weather is really pants. Local trails are carved up and QE2 is not really a wet weather venue.
Maybe I will crack out the scrabble.Posted 7 years ago
