 Not an art installation just someone who got it very wrong going up Coombe Bottom             

Hi Stragglists,
 
If you were out riding last Saturday you would have enjoyed a beautiful sunny day and as close to a summer’s day as you could wish to have without the baking heat. If you were out on the Sunday, on the other hand, you would have got very wet indeed. Sunday was a washout so I suspect that no sensible Stragglist would have ventured out.
During our wonderfully sunny ride - short-sleeved jerseys and shorts - Mrs C and I came across the sight of this mini which had become part of the local landscape at the top of Coombe Bottom. Can you imagine the speed that the nut behind the wheel of the said vehicle must have been doing to fly up a very steep Surrey ramp to end up, literally, wrapping it around a clump of trees at the top? Heaven help anyone who might have been approaching the junction at the time.
 
Park Roads
Ingrid received a message from Richmond Park Cyclists to say that the new road surface inside the park is coming on and what has been completed it silky smooth. The whole project should be completed by spring next year with the re-laying of the comparatively short road from the Robin Hood roundabout to Pen Ponds.
 
Sunday’s Ride…with the Third Wheelers
The weather has become more settled and the temperature is now pretty normal for autumn and the weekend is set to continue the trend. Mirella has sorted out a very nice route for her group which will stop off at a comparatively new café called the Reading Room. Mrs C And I tried it out a couple of weeks ago and we were very impressed both with the coffee and choice of homemade cakes. The route is under 40 miles so you should get back in good time. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28766097
Groups One and Two are going to make a trip to Tan House Farm in Newdigate but taking a slightly different route than what you would be used to. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28805532   
 
Hope to see you at the Angel.
 
Happy cycling,
 
Ray
