May’s Thursday evening gravel thrash

19 May 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Come and join the Norwood Paragon and discover some new off-road routes between Reigate and Oxted. This is a social ride lead by a member of the Paragon, most of which is off road, so a chance to ride and chat as you discover sections of the Greensands and North Downs way.

There’s one big hill climbing out of Oxted up to the North Downs way but the rest is fairly tame. The ride starts and finishes at the Inn on the Pond in Merstham which is on Sustrans route 21, just east of Redhill. You can pick up this marked route in Noke Drive, just behind Redhill train station. From there it’s a short ride to the start point.

Parts of the route may change slightly from the map displayed below which is to give a general idea of where we’ll be going.

What you’ll need

An off road bike with all the usual spares including tubes, pump, tyre levers and multitools. Lights will also be needed as it’ll likely be getting dark when we get to the finish point. Water is essential, and bring food if you think you’ll need it for a 1.30hr ride. Dress according to the weather and keep in mind it will get cold quickly once the sun goes down. We recommend a gravel bike, but mtbs and ‘cross bikes would be fine.

The ride will be leaving the Inn on the Pond at 7.30pm, please don’t be late. If you’d like to know more you can contact us via info@norwoodparagon.co.uk
