A great Thursday night ride from The Fleece in Elstead led by James, passing through Thursley and some twisty singletrack to Hankley, Tilford, Bourne Woods and Crookesbury. James had a couple of surprise downs at Hankley which were new for a few of us who thought we knew these trails.
Here’s the route:
More singletrack threw us out at Frensham Little Pond, and then we headed across Pierrepont Home Farm to cross the River Wey at the footbridge at Tankersford Common. It has traditionally been a ford, and Pete decided to test this theory by cycling across! Watch him in action here:

We then hit Bourne Woods, where we gave them downhills some hell!
More climbs up Crooksbury Hill tested the legs, and the evening shadows made some of the trails a little dark, so Mat whipped out his small headlamp. Nothing in small measures that lad!
Great ride, great workout, and great company back at The Fleece for a beer.
