So as indicated, I had a right good thrash around this loop. Couple of little reminders for Purley
That bit just outside Biggin Hill where we got told off for being on the footpath, when you get to the lake, go past it but hanger left not long after and you'll take the lower route which was the bridleway. It'll sign post to the left when you reach the top - take that to cross the road directly onto the next bridleway section...
...which takes you past Wilberforce oak. Make sure to take a stop for a nice picture and education lesson
Watch out for horses, there were a lot on Saturday. They were all very pleasant but left a lot of do-do so keep your eyes peeled.
That scout camp bit, when you're in the car-park, go left to the end and you'll see a path to your right - take that and head up. You'll see a junction at the top, take the right to go up again then left and that'll take you on the path out of the forest into the field. That'll skip all that bit we did in the camping field looking for an exit
When you get to the common remember don't head left to Warlingham (spelling) but right, then first left. Follow that road to the junction and take a right - you'll see the bridleway into the woods...
...the one with the major gunk! Make sure you've got some good tread. I ended up heading out without a loop because I wanted to check out Selsdon more. When you're out of that, remember to take the first right road! (The blast across the Golf courses was ACE!).
Finally Selsdon, definitely try and follow the post markings. There are green and red arrowed routes. They take you all over the wood and are a right hoot if you crank up the speed. They aren't technically demanding but still good fun if you mix it up a bit.
