Ride cancelled this year due to lack of interest.
Sunday 4th November
Meet Twickenham Station before 10.05 to catch the 10.15 to Staines.(arr 10.30) We cycle through Staines Moor then via Colnbrook , through Langley Park and past Black Park to the woodlands of Burnham Beeches in their autumnal splendour. After lunch in a woodland cafe we head down to the Jubilee River path which takes us to Datchet and so back to Staines. About 30 miles mostly tarmac with some smooth gravel paths. Quite scenic / hilly.
If interested please email Paul firstname.lastname@example.org
NB ride will be cancelled if it is wet – lunch spot is not roofed !
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
Saturday 19th May
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.
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.
