Mortlake to Isabella
Meet outside Mortlake Station at 10.30. We cycle east, passing Burton’s tent, to Barnes Common and then up to Richmond Park. The Tasmin Trail takes us beside the Beverly Brook (the beavers have long gone) then we turn up to Isabella Plantation. After a brief look at the spring flowers we return to Pen Ponds for coffee and enjoy a freewheel back down to Mortlake. Back about 12.30.
Four of us set off after some problems with identification.( LCC have now supplied some more flags so the ride leader will , in future, be more easily seen .) Despite cloudy spells we enjoyed dry weather and usual and unusual sights including a pedal driven rig for filming cyclists.
