Holmbury St Mary
We returned to The Royal Oak for the third time in four years but with a different map area and a 3 hour SAF course. It made good use the dense network of trails around Pitch Hill, Holmbury Hill and Leith Hill. There was heavy rain the night before the event which made the course very muddy. The rain continued for most riders but the later starters saw sun and bright autumnal skies.
This was a new area for SLOW and surprisingly hilly with loads of great riding. Congratulations to Ifor Powell for winning the overall event. Radnage Village Hall provided an ideal event base. Despite having cancelled a couple of events this year, there is still hot competition for 2020 Series places as we head for the final event of the season.
August saw the return of our events with Jane’s course around the North Downs near Effingham. We able to take in many of the fantastic views all around using the standard format course on an A3 1:25,000 map. We had a record turnout and it is great to see everyone back at events. There was plenty of room on the playing fields to spread out.
Our first event was based at The Three Horseshoes pub in Thursley and covered the fantastic area around Thursley Common, Hankley Common and the Devil’s Punch Bowl. Navigation proved tricky as there were trails all over the place. The forecast rain went elsewhere and although there were some muddy sections most of the trails had a good surface well suited to all year riding .
