Cycling in Surrey Hills this weekend and staying in close to Dorking. Can anyone share a good 50is mile route in and around that area?

I can recommend a pub if you want somewhere to eat as well. The Dolphin in Betchworth Laughing out loud Went there Sunday just gone.

Have a look at the old olympic route as a lot of it passed through Surrey and the roads should be better for it. They are a little business though as part of it passes through the Guildford to Dorking road. If you head down towards Dunsfold area via the backroads, Shere, Bramley, Shamley Green etc. there are some great coffee stops and climbs etc.

classic clubrun route of ours, takes in some of the key hills/villages in the area. view from coldharbour is great! you can probably drop going into Guildford but you'd miss newlands corner which is also a great view

coming from Dorking you could however stop in Guildford (halfway round) for coffee/cake/whatever.. or maybe tweak the route slightly to go for coffee at the snooty fox in shalford

Just had a shed built and am looking to hang a MTB, Road Bike and my kid's bike using the below to optimise space…
…I've seen similar but nothing with a fixing point as thin as the one's shown in the pic. Anyone have any idea where I can get the above from? Cheers.

Nice one - thanks, quest Cool
Thought they'd be from more obscure stores than that!

brilliant Burt Cool

I had this page bookmarked earlier in the summer in hopes to replicate something similar -

Of course I still haven't done shit..
no need to overcomplicate things. just get the hooks and install em
