Sunday 14th October
Meet at Twickenham Riverside 10.30. We head out across Bushy Park and through Thames Ditton to Littleworth Common and Ardbrook Common to reach Cobham. Crossing the Mole we follow lanes to Bookham Common and up to to NT cafe outside of Polsden Lacy. If enough of us are members we can have a quick look inside. As a life member + volunteer I can take 2 guests. On the way home we add Oxshott Common and Claygate woods.
37 miles mostly away from the traffic.
If interested email firstname.lastname@example.org
Crown Road , St Margaret’s will be closed to traffic so we have an easy afternoon ride starting from there at 2pm. Meet at the Richmond Council display.
We explore the new path from Twickenham Station to reach Crane Park where we ride both the Whitton and Hounslow banks before returning to Kneller Gardens . (Tea ?) where we divert to Twickenham Riverside ( soon , we hope, to be less car-dominated) and return via Orleans House, Marble Hill and Turner’s House.
If interested please let me know ; Paul. email@example.com

Meet Richmond Little Green by theatre at 10.00am.
We Cross the Thames and pass through the grounds of Sion House before heading up the Grand Union Canal to Norwood Green. A country lane takes us into the wide spaces of Osterley Park where we enjoy coffee in the stables before passing the mansion on the way home. About 10 miles, quiet with some slopes. Should be back around 12 ish.
SORRY RIDE POSTPONED
Meet Twickenham Riverside , by Eel Pie Bridge , 10.30. Sunday 6th 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.
UPDATE – RIDE POSTPONED: PATH STILL CLOSED !!
As can be seen the path from Twickenham Station to Crane Park should now be open in September so we can have a celebratory ride. Meet Twickenham Station 10.15.
I am looking at this route that looks at a few newish paths in Hounslow as well. (Coffee in Feltham ?
8 miles flat and 6 of them traffic-free.

Anyone who has joined our southerly rides will have benefited from these excellent maps. They are now available again (but at a modest price rather than free, but still good value) from main Surrey libraries.
See this website.
