montain biking

so last weekend i managed to get out for a great mountain bike ride in the hills of Surrey.We took the train down to Gomshall and from there headed to the small village of Peaslake.We never hang about to long here as it is a mecca for bikers and gets very busy,so we shot through and climbed onto Reynars hills then picked up some lovely singletrack trails through the woods to drop us into peaslake again then it was short step climb[pushing] to get up onto holmbury hill.Here we stopped for abit in the lovely sunshine before more great singletrack down into holmbury st mary’s and the royal oak for a well earned pint and a bowl of chips.From here its along hot climb to the top of leith hill but the little national trust tea shop in the tower is always worth while.After tea and cake it was pretty much downhill all the way to the main road at westcott and a long old road ride back to dorking station.
All in all it was a great day out and it made a change from walking.We are planning a overnight trip out for the longest day and plan to go superlight weight.ill be able to incorporate my lightweight hiking with mountain biking.
