Just 3 of us did this ride ; we had just had quite a bit of rain and more was forecast. Also I had to make a late correction to the erroneous time posted on Lets Ride ( 11.15 start , coffee break and finish by 12 isn’t going to work ). An impressive number of people using the Thames path which meant that the views had to be taken carefully to avoid collisions.
