Meet Twickenham Riverside – by Eel Pie bridge 10.00.
Our traditional post-turkey jaunt. On/off road quiet and scenic route to Box Hill then a steady climb to the viewpoint and lunch in NT Cafe at the top (as the pub we used to patronise is now a trendy wine-bar). Enjoy a switchback descent taking us most of the way home. About 40 miles in total. Better bring lights but expect to get back before 4.
Route (May be modified if we get much more rain. )
Four of us met up on Twickenham Riverside. After a generally dry few weeks the going over the commons was good and we were treated with glimpses of sun. After a quick snack at the top we zoomed back getting back to Twickenham at about 2pm. Is this a record ?

Ride cancelled this year due to lack of interest.

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.
