Meet : Twickenham Riverside – by Eel Pie Bridge at 10.30am
Description: Five of us set off into a headwind that somehow accommodated us going south then west. Shortly after losing one rider to a puncture we reached Chertsey Bridge and finally had wind assistance for a scenic ride up the river to Staines. On to Ankerwyke where a short walk took us to woodlands filled with snowdrops and an ancient yew. ( Sorry I said 1000 years old – actually about 2500 years !) . Returned to Staines for lunch at the North Star (friendly if a bit noisy ) then quiet roads back to Twickenham . Back by 3.15 pm.
