This year the ride started at two main locations - the London Eye and also Esher College, making a 75mile ride at the longest. Passing through Richmond Park, down towards Esher and then the other riders joining the main route to Hove it all went smoothly.
At Box Hill the new tarmac ready for the Olympics, which is as smooth as treacle - claimed a few victims on the last hairpin as they misjudged their speed into the corner. All got back up ok though !!
Down into Sussex countryside, past the Hammerpond, along the foot of the Downs to Poynings and then the two stage climb up Devils Dyke, before finally enjoying the view and downhill ride into Hove and the Finish on the Kings Lawns.

We had 5 photographers out on the course to cover as much of the action as possible - and have also introduced a new product to let you get as many memories as possible from the day - under £20 to get all your images at screen resolution - ideal for facebook and home photo galleries.

And remember we donate proceeds from the photo sales to the Charities involved - and last year we we raised £198 from sales - so please help us to raise even more funds for the good causes.

Here's a few photos from the gallery that hopefully sum up the day - and a very big well done and congratulations to everyone involved on the day - it was a long one !!
