Re: Sunday 17th September - Hindhead to South Downs - Inbetweeners Level

It was a great ride which was made up of good company, challenging circumstances and camaraderie. There were clearly different levels of ability in the group but it didn't necessarily matter on this occasion. We all had a great day.

Boundless Road "car park" (more a lay by) is unlikely to be as secure for trailers than somewhere more public. It can only take about 6 cars.

Steve, I know its cheeky but Beer Belly and I used to park in the hotel, if the main car park was busy. The staff didn't seem to mind.

Cheers, see you all soon.
