Hi ... I live in Surrey and am looking for someone or someones even, to share some of the cracking trails we have in and around the South East during the week.

Love off and on road. Can do muddy and scrapes without too much squealing. I'm unsure as to what level I am at, but can keep up with the guys at the weekend and have done the odd Evans Ride It event. Sooo if there are any like minded gals or guys for that matter, then please drop me a line and we can have a chat about where how and whatever !!!

    Thanks for all your suggestions. I have googled but there seems to be quite a difference in clubs. Those that pootle around with coffee and lunch and then even afternoon tea breaks and then the likes of the redhill crowd et al.
    Ha.. something in between would be good. I guess it's a case of turning up and having a go.
    Thanks again guys.

    We're regular visitors to the Surrey Hills (Despite the club name) as our members are spread all over the North/South Downs.

    Very friendly, never blasting off and leaving people behind, but quite adventurous too.

    If you didn't learn anything today, you weren't paying attention!

    Look at the London Calling thread. There's a bunch of us out most weeknds in the surrey hills or thereabouts. Not a huge group, mixed fitness levels so quite chilled out. Post up if you're up for something.

    Redhill has a good mix of abilities. A typical saturday ride is about 20-22 miles, covered in 3-4 hours including a tea stop somewhere. There are also faster rides available if and when you want to start pushing it, including Wednesday nights and pre-rides from somewhere to the start of the main saturday one.

    We have members that regularly ride Surrey. Infact, there's a ride being planned this weekend.

    Hugely mixed ability and absolutely NO eliteism.... guaranteed :D

    What Atz said. We have a ride planned for Sunday, 10 am from Peaslake. We ride for fun, and wait for the slowest most useless person, generally me.
    Between us we know most of the trails and always happy to have new people join in. ... start=2340

    +1 on the London Calling thread. We're all in there.

    Loads of stuff about the south east. Far more than you'd expect and contrary to popular belief there are some decent hills about the area.
