Mike Morley of CTC SW London has asked me to publicise this early-season warm-up event which is raising money for St. Raphael’s Hospice, North Cheam. Entry is £5 (at least) payable on the line which will all go to St. Raphael’s. Signing on is at Ryka’s cafe car park Burford Bridge/Box Hill from 9.30am Saturday morning with prompt start at 10am. Pre-entry will be helpful. For full information look at ‘Hilly 50K’ on their home page at www.cyclingswlondon.org.uk. This is a sporting, challenging, unsupported ride and few will complete it in under two hours. Now there’s a challenge! The event has been running for over 30 years and is a well tried route finishing at the Cafe on top of Box Hill by 2pm.
