Unfortunately your be waiting a long time to meet anyone on the trails,as very few rides are posted on here.It would be better for you if you go to either kent-trails or Gravesend Grunts,both on facebook.Nice bike.

Pablo, look at joining London calling on facebook, they ride the Surrey hills a lot and there is better trails than anywhere else in the south east. You could join a Nirvana cycles shop ride too, Do some research and be careful if you do however.

Thanks for the info, will check out london calling too. I have been Surrey hills a few times and love it. Usually start in Peaslake and make my way over to Pitch Hill, but would like to explore the Winterfold and Hurtwood areas more, Especially Evian, but online reports seem to mention it being closed so not too sure what to expect.

Went back to Bedgebury with a pal yesterday and had a nice spin around. To top it off we attempted a ride around Mereworth woods after, but not really knowing the area all that was found was bridleways, logs and the army on exercise :roll:

Been a couple of weeks since I was at Surrey but as far as I know mile stone hops and Evian are still a no go. But secret Santa and out other way northern monkey and bronson are all going well still. Redlands seems to be have more done on it lately to.
Be good to get some sketchy rides going again, until then go for Kent trails, super nice group with mixed ability of riders that are fun to get out riding with. mean to catchup with them more myself.

Yeah I have the Kent Trails link on my desktop, and check it regularly. Sadly most of the rides have clashed with other comitments so far. Near the end of last month I think I may have been able get on the final ride on their calendar but when I clicked the link for more info it expanded in the box so it couldn't be read propperly, grr :lol:

If technical internet difficulties can be overcome I will have a ride out with them at some point!
