The fourth NSRA Spring Rumble weekend took place on the 27th and 28th of May, with Rumbles taking place around the country, including Lincolnshire, Suffolk, South East Kent, and Surrey. And it was the Surrey region that our roving reporter joined for a great day of driving through the Surrey Hills.
Starting the day in Godalming with a hearty breakfast, the group left the meeting point and headed in the direction of Box Hill, the summit of the North Downs in Surrey. After negotiating with the cyclists and walkers who were also out enjoying the sunshine and the views, the Rumblers weaved their way through the beautiful Surrey villages of Shere, Albury, and Bramley, crossing over the oldest bridge in Surrey at Eashing. The drivers then blasted through the Hindhead Tunnel (open headers were obligatory!) before making their way to the Devil’s Punch Bowl viewpoint.
With a brief stop at Frensham Great Pond to regroup, the Rumblers drove through the ford near Frensham Common and headed towards Puttenham Common. The final leg of the drive took the drivers through Hurtmore village and eventually to the Broadwater Community Centre where the organisers had laid on a delicious cream tea, sponsored by the Surrey Street Rodders. What a fantastic day!
Although this is our roving reporters’ final Rumble, there are still two further Rumble weekends still to enjoy. So if you are joining the Scottish Central, Leicestershire, Bedfordshire, or the Essex/Herts border Rumbles, we’d love to hear from you.
