Rides for Explorers – Windsor Great Park – 7th May

Windsor Ride - Sun InnWindsor Ride May 17 2

Meet Twickenham Riverside , by Eel Pie Bridge , 10.30. 7th  May

We cut across to Hampton then roughly follow the Thames upstream using NCR4 from Chertsey to Staines. A steep climb to Englefield Green is rewarded by lunch at the Sun Inn then we enjoy the practically traffic free Windsor Great Park and track into Windsor. We than return more directly to Twickenham with more mixed surroundings but finishing with our local Crane Park trail.  38 miles with one big hill.

Route

17 of us turned up on a grey Twickenham Riverside but the sun broke through as we got through Staines. The Sun coped a bit slowly with the unexpected load but we had a sunny garden with chickens and were well fed and watered for a ride through verdant Windsor Great Park and down a twisty track into Windsor and traffic again.
