Meet Twickeham Riverside by Eel Pie island bridge 10.30.

We head up the Thames to Chertsey  and then up into the hills as far as Chobham Common. We have lunch at the “Hangar Cafe” at Fairoaks Airport before enjoying a downhill section to Weybridge and so home.

35 miles and a bit hilly.

Route

Five of us met up on a windy Twickenham Riverside and threaded our way through the car park and so down to Hampton and , against a stiff wind , up the Thames to Chertsey. En route we had to crawl under a fallen tree and pass bikes over the top. The hills beyond were mercifully sheltered from the wind by the trees although there was a short shower.

After Lunch we had the wind behind us and made good speed back to Walton where we sampled a rather muddy river path so that we decided that Tea (and cakes) at the Cricket Club would aid recovery.
