- Surrey Hills- Ranmore etc advice
Just watch for unexpected drops
The last time I was in the Surrey Hills- The picket fence alongside the church towards Peaslake – I turned sharp left and expected a rooted rollin (that I remembered from a few years before) and instead it was a drop with the run out to the carpark. I 😯 then 😆 as I managed to save myself.
Surrey Hills has closed, all the trails have been dug up. nothing to see..

You hooking up with anybody from these parts?
I was planning on riding stupid-early on Sat and Sun am as Sat/Sunday we are driving into London for touristy-stuff. Stupid early as in 8am- is that ‘early’? If you/anyone riding early I could tag along. I’m quiet and mouse-like in person 😈Posted 4 years ago
Ok, I’m back down next weekend staying near the Surrey Hills. I know all the old stuff but I must admit the last time I rode round there proper was circa 2008 with one visit last year starting at Coldharbour and over to Peaslake/Holmbury and back.
Any route/start/place tips/maps?Posted 4 years agotonyg2003Subscriber
Lots of new stuff on Ranmore too, as well as the usual changes to Pitch, Winterfold. I’d follow some riders around. Everything is riding beautifully although we are expecting rain in the next few days.
Just park your Audi in the walking bottom car park, put your body armour on and ride/walk you Nomad up to Yoghurt pots and you will fit right in 🙂Posted 4 years agoslowboydickieSubscriber
I’m going to be riding out of Dorking on ranmore / north downs on some of the old quarries mixed with XC. Quite steep and exhilarating in places. Going out 0730 Sunday but only for 1.5 hours. I can point you in the direction of other trails if you want a longer ride. Let me know on slowboydickie AT gmail DOT comPosted 4 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Just come in from 2 hours on Holmbury. Apart from making a hash of secret squirrel (easiest conditions ever) and making a mash of my shin, everything was running really well. Did a few old favs that haven’t ridden for ages (coco and the other one to the right of that and forgotten how much fun they were. Yog pots is really fun right now, just carry enough speed for the slight surprise early on!!!
Have fun.Posted 4 years ago
No Hora, Winterfold is the other side of Pitch Hill. You need to get to Peaslake then short climb up curry lane to the Windmill and that’s winterfold ish. There are several really good runs on WF but they are a little tucked away if you aren’t with someone who knows the way they’re hard to find. Probably the easiest one to find is ladies legs but I’d take the parallel run that has all the big jumps and berms on it no idea what it’s called but it is a right laugh.Posted 4 years ago
