South Downs Ride - Saturday 1st August

Hi All

New to the forum, looking to go out this Saturday for a decent day of riding, will probably leave from Putney about 11am. Will probably aim for West Sussex and Hampshire as I know the roads well. Would anyone be keen to join? I’m on a Kawasaki ZX12R.


Sounds like a good run and I’m all for more Saturday rideouts.

It’s just a shame I am kinda lacking a bike that weekend! Arse :grin:

Welcome to LB! Think we’re off to Duxford on Saturday but if that changes we might pop along.

Shame Janey, get one sorted!

Where will you be leaving from for Duxford?

No more takers?

Are you doing 3 of them?

No, but I got the date wrong in the title in Newbies, thought I had done the same in this section but clearly I haven’t, so now I just look stupid!!

Ok so i have the weekend off, Sunday will be a mess regarding the cycling in surrey/london so a saturday blast to south downs looks good. Im keen on meeting at box hill as i live on the east sussex coast.

Oh and a 8.30 - 9.00 meet would be better as i will have a long ride home after the blast…

OK, 9AM at Box Hill? My number is 07824 470190. Guessing you’re on a KTM 1290 duke? I’m on a black ZX12R with gold wheels. Number plate starts PNO4.

I’ll see you tomorrow morning!


Ok see you in the morning, what route are you planning on taking.

Thinking something like this, but open to amendments if you know better roads. These are all pretty good from what I remember.

Or click it, as apparently that’ll work too ha!

Yep I’m impressed, that route looks great! some of it is Alba’s favorite roads so I’m guessing its fastish, what do you say for an 8.30 coffee at box hill.

I’ll be there for 9 but happy to grab a coffee before we shoot off. Or if you’d rather leave as soon as I get there that’s fine too.

Ok 9.00 meet at box hill it is, I’ll be there before to grab a coffee, Im sure we can have a breakfast at loomies

Ok ill get there asap as I’ll need some caffeine!

i would have joined if my dog wasnt sick :frowning:

I wish your dog well and I will see why you enjoy these roads :slight_smile:

!!! It’s the ‘Ride London’ cycle event today guys… loads of road closures around Box Hill and the Surrey Hills, you won’t get anywhere near the place… plus the route down… have a look here and avoid :wink:
