Rob and Joe smash the Original Box Hill sportive

While the laser sailors were drifting around today for the Laser Barometer, Joe McLaughlin and Rob Wilder rode in the Original Box Hill sportive. Starting from Sandown race course out into the Surrey hills, West Sussex and back. They took in Leith hill, White Down and Box Hill with over 5200ft of climbing and 102 miles in total.The guys managed it in 7hours 10 mins!

Perhaps a couple of Tamesis Velo rides next year if we can get the interest.

  1. Well done Rob and Joe. The Surrey hills are home to a regular Tamesis Laser event – the Laser Walk – organised and ‘hosted’ by Donald and Cherry Forbes. You must have got round the hills a lot quicker than we do, but then you probably didn’t spend so much time admiring the views, or enjoy a leisurely pub lunch! Impressive medals – we’ll have to get some for the Laser walkers.
