Ripley is a village and parish in Surrey, England, which grew on the main A3 road from London to Portsmouth.[when?] The road was renumbered as B2215 when the A3 trunk road was expanded into six lanes north of Guildford[when?] and the village was bypassed with Send.[vague] The distance is 4 miles (6.4 km) to the M25 motorway. It lies 10 km (6.2 mi) southeast of Woking, 11 km (6.8 mi) northeast of Guildford and some 38 km (24 mi) southwest of central London. Neighbouring villages -- Send and Send Marsh adjoin to the south-west; the closest outlying village is Ockham in the east—have fewer shopping facilities.
The village includes a coaching inn, The Talbot Hotel which dates back to 1453. as well as Drake's restaurant, which has been awarded a Michelin star and 3 AA rosettes. The village high street includes a small supermarket, butchers, cobblers and bakery.

Cycling heritage 
In the 1870s, cycling also became a popular activity in the South of England and Ripley was a convenient distance from London so that many cyclists would stop there for a break at the Anchor Inn. Sisters Annie and Harriet Dibble encouraged the cyclists so much that, in some years in the following decade, their visitors' book was signed with over 7,000 names - all arriving on penny-farthings or boneshakers.
Cycling routes today
