    Okay, so moved down from Leeds a couple of years ago with a very poorly Stumpy FSR and little money for medical bills. Bike is now in good health again and am looking to get down into Surrey Hills etc but would be great to meet some local riders who know where’s good/just for the company!

    So, shout me up and lets see what Surrey’s got to offer!!

    Have a look at muddy moles or diary of a mountainbiker.

    You should get a few takers off here too. I’d offer but at present I can’t get out to ride due to family/work commitments. Only had about 5 turbo sessions (and no outdoor riding) in 8 weeks.

    @ Zippykona Where will I find them?

    @Spacemonkey – we’d probably be on a similar level then… haven’t had the bike out in ages! Fitness may be dubious to start with!!

    The Muddymoles are good though probably start a bit early for you if you’re in London.

    They should come up with a google. The diary people meet up either at leith hill or ashtead which is near epsom on a Sunday morning.

    Thanks all… I’ll get in touch with the afor mentioned folks and get something hooked up though perhaps a few sneaky rides of my own first to get the legs working again!!

    I ride with Freeborn most Sunday mornings at Pitch hill – meet at the top car park (near the WIndmill pub) at 8.30am, and we’ll show you some of the top trails in the area, very welcome to join us…

    If you’re after a night ride and don’t mind the company of miserable old men ๐Ÿ˜‰ there’s a regular Weds night ride from Westcott (outside Nirvana Cycles). We meet 6.30ish, ride till 9, pub for an hour, back at Westcott 10.30 or 11. It’s a sociable ride but can be quite quick. Check out the forum at http://www.mtbsurreyhills.com

    moles meet at 8:30am on Sundays, at Brockham Farm normally. Also a wednesday night ride.

    the DoaMTB guys seem to start later normally – maybe 9:30am, and there seem to be more rides on a Saturday.

    If you want to go further afield, I’m happy to show you around Swinley/Crowthorne.

    Now Matt, I know you’re one giggle away from a big white shirt that ties up at the back but you can’t deny there’s a sprinkling of grumpy old gits in the ranks ๐Ÿ˜†

    You’re right – usually far more ๐Ÿ™‚

    Seem to see one of ‘you’ at Peaslake every time I’m there – on a blinged up Scale RC with tyres than often look inappropriate!

    OP – you can do a lot worse than turn up to Peaslake on a weekend and ask nicely to tag on with a group who look to be of a similar ilk to you!

    Groovie, come to Swinley its much better than that rubbish Surrey Hills ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    email me in profile and i’ll let you know when there’s a ride planned

    Funny thing is it was only last night, as we supped a pint by a log fire after a 90 mins of st, that cheez and I were discussing how crap it was and we should go to Swinley instead.

    lol, everyone fighting over groovejunkie.

    And so they should! We’re all very nice down here don’t you know. When do we start the ‘my back yard is better than yours’ bit… ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Groovejunkie you’ve got stacks of quality riding on your doorstep so you’ll obviously want to focus attention there, but if you fancy a slight change of scenery you’re welcome down on the south east corner of the North downs (Haslemere). I have a couple of STW regulars joining us next Saturday (4th) for a blast around the hills.

    I think we should also stress that, while it’s fair to say we have a preponderance of ‘grumpy old men’, happy young women are more than welcome to ride with us too.

    Hi guys, what are the conditions like in the surrey hills at the moment? How are the trails holding up?

    That happened twice Matt and now they are both in New Zealand. I wonder if there is a link lol

    …and you offer a free sofa with every ride dont you Ali ๐Ÿ˜†

    @montarius pretty good on the whole, it’s not rained much this winter, though there was some slop, mulch and slippy roots about last night

    @ybot what about our friend from Malta?

    ask1974
    Member

    Ah yes, I forgot about that. For the first two new comers to the Surrey Hills set, a free two seat sofa ๐Ÿ˜›

    Not sure if it’s been said but the shop Nirvana cycles (based in westcott) do guided rides ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thats true Matt, how could I forget about Steph but to be fair you can’t really call her a regular Wednesday night rider(Cock).
