Bread pudding ride to Englefield Green


Staines Riverside, with Statue of the ‘Swan Master’

A mostly bright day, with increasing cloud in the afternoon, saw 22 Cyclists leave via Kingston Bridge, Bushy Park, (& a 10Km ‘fun run’), Hampton, Hanworth, lower Feltham, Ashford, Knowle Green, Staines, Staines Bridge, -with an advance party missing a turn-, (me thinks the leader forgot to forewarn them), Egham, to Englefield Green for lunch at the ‘Barley Mow’, (with a somewhat confusing ordering & payment system :-p), then Bishopsgate of Windsor great Park, Savill Garden, Virginia Water lake, Virginia Water village, Lyne, St Ann’s Hill, Chertsey, -with a missing Footbridge causing a small detour-, Chertsey Mead, Chertsey Bridge, Shepperton, to Upper Haliford for Tea & BP at Squires Garden centre, then Sunbury, Hampton, Dukes Head gate of Bushy Park, to Church grove, Kingston Bridge. Total 35 Miles, 3 new Faces. Thanks to Steve D & Mike for sharing the Back marking duties, thanks as always to John for the Bread Pudding.
