Rides for Explorers 5th May – Windsor Great Park and Chobham

Meet Twickenham Riverside 10.30. We head up the Crane then some unavoidable suburbia across Shortwood common into Staines.  After going through Egham we climb to Englefield Green for lunch at  the Sun Inn. We then enjoy the traffic free roads across Windsor Great Park and make our way through Sunningdale and Chobham Common descending to Chertsey to return along the Thames. About 37 hilly but scenic miles.

 

A healthy eighteen of us turned up in Twickenham, including a lady and her grandson , and enjoyed a ride in  excellent conditions. A fitter group detached themselves occasionally for extra miles which was a good solution to varying levels of riding. Given the numbers we avoided the awkward gates to Shortwood Common at the expense of a bit of main road. We tried the NCR 4 through Staines but were unimpressed.
