Bike Ride from Croydon
Sunday 10th April 2022 @ 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Assemble at Canary Cafe on the Brighton road for a 10:30 departure, so come at 10am for a quick coffee before setting off. Just South of Whitgift School, you can’t miss it. From there we will head further South.
Depending on the weather, on the day and in the days ahead, will depend our ultimate path from Croydon. Some paths could be muddy if we have had wet weather. We have two options:
Godstone Vinyards via Caterham – this is a circular route we took some years ago, which was great fun. As long as it is dry under our tyres, this route is a classic, but it has some off road sections that might be muddy if it has been raining. Quiet back routes down through South Croydon to Caterham, where there is an option to get the train home, or to meet us from the train if you are running late. Then off into alpine Caterham, over the A22 on the bridge, and down to the Vinyards, where there is a cafe. Back via private roads through Warlingham School, into Warlingham, and home down Limpsfield Road.
Keep Cycling South. Further afield on a linear route with the train home. With good weather and strong legs we could take the high road up Riddlesdown to Warlingham, the bike track along the Limpsfield Road to Botley Hill, down through Clackett Lane into Limpsfield Chart, and on to Lingfield, or further, with a train home once we are done. We follow the train line so there are lots of options to get home.
When we get closer to the date we will confirm the final plan, based on your preferences, and the weather
