Bread Pudding ride to Northolt

Sunday 5th March. With a somewhat damp forecast, it was a pleasant surprise to see the Sun at the start, but would it last, so 9 Chaps, (all the Ladies perhaps where put off by the Forecast), left via Kingston Bridge, Bushy Park, Hampton, Fulwell, River Crane path, Whitton, Isleworth, Osterley, Osterley Park, Norwood Green, Southall, Greenford to Northolt – with 1 brief Shower, approaching Northolt-, for Lunch at ‘the Crown’, afterwards, still with some Sun, but also a couple of heavy Showers, the Grand Union Canal towpath to Perivale, alas we had lost 1 member of the party, after a few calls it was established that Iyad had felt Dizzy, so the Leader retraced the route, then found an alternative route away from the Canal, regrouping in Perivale, then Pitshanger Park, Hanger Hill, West Acton, Acton, Acton Park for Tea & a ‘special’ BP to celebrate our Leaders Birthday, followed by a sharp Hale Shower, Acton Green, Chiswick Green, Grove park, Chiswick Bridge, Mortlake, Sheen gate Richmond Park, with a strong Headwind to complete the weather full house, to Kingston Gate, Kingston.
