Out to Box Hill via Cobham and Effingham, and then back via Epsom. Traffic around Hampton Court was dreadful, and I still have no clue how to get around Kingston's one way system using the cyclepaths to keep me out of the way of the three lane ringroad.

Started off quite nice weather, but that deteriorated, luckily quite late in the ride, the last 30km were a bit wet, but I had my gilet and armwarmers, thankfully.

Some of the descents were terrifying, had to apply the brakes almost constantly as the road surfaces weren't good, the roads were winding and I'm not at all confident going downhill these days.

Happily, the wind was in my favour too, into the wind on the way out, but with the wind on the way back, I had some major assistance going up some of the hills which was nice!

It was a good ride, and I found myself enjoying myself on quite a few occasions!
