    I'd have to be careful at box hill as my S4 doesnt like the speed bumps on the top of the hill by the viewpoint but still interested. Rikers Cafe at the bottom of the hill would be fine though so very interested

    its ok if you stay at the bottom of the hill by the a24 but take the long winding road up the hill (called 'The ZigZag') to the top and it's speed humps all the way and they're not small. The road to the top is very narrow in places and not much up there other than a small tea rooms, some car parks and the viewpoint.

    I won't take my S4 up there as the view from the top is seriously not worth a new sump and exhaust. The bottom and the cafe 'Rikers' is the best place with it's large car park and dual carriageway:no: lol but its a favourite spot with the local constabulary due to Rikers being a bikers cafe

    i am up for the 30th, boxhill will be jam packed full of bikes, i doubt you'll get one car in there, i think maybe a different venue would be better.

    I have been talking to a few members and I think due to their being lots of bikers at Box Hill during the summer, this venue for the meet is not suitable. However, with the help of Simon there is a great venue who are happy to have us at a great loaction not far from Box Hill.

    Check out the link below for the venue.

    http://forums.surreyscoobies.co.uk/showthread.php?t=14696

    I have spoken with the manager today and he has confirmed that we can use it for the same date Sunday 1st July. I will post the link for the maps below. So all I need now is feedback from you people.

    I think this is the best venue so far and it also works well for meeting at Newlands Corner first and going off in convoy to the main venue.

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&hl=en&saddr=Drove+Rd,+Guildford,+Surrey,+GU4+8&daddr=Guildford,+KT11+2BU&sll=30.297018,56.777344&sspn=70.62923,163.476563&ie=UTF8&z=11&om=1

    Please don't be put out by the move, it's not difficult to find and we now have a venue that has a great amount of space, so let s pull out all the stops and get as many there as we can please.

    We are looking to get to Newlands Corner for the first meeting place at 11.00. Then to move off to get to the Pub for 11.30.

    Thanks very much for everyones' input so far it's much apreciated.
