Sunday 25th September. Part 1, a mostly bright day with a Chilly breeze saw 23 Cyclists leave the finish of Kingston’s half Marathon behind via Skerne Rd, Kingston gate of Richmond park, the ‘Tamsin trail’, Ham gate, Ham, Ham house, Thames towpath to Richmond Bridge, (with a small detachment almost missing the ramp to the Bridge), Ducks walk, St Margerets, Isleworth, Whitton, Twickenham, Fulwell to Teddington lock for lunch at ‘the Anglers’, then Hampton wick & Kingston Bridge. Total 13 Miles, thanks to Jon W for back marking.
The ride was followed by saying a very fond farewell to Nick & Ruth who are moving to pastures new, we’re certainly going to miss all the Photo’s from Ruth, & I’ll also miss Nick’s sage advice.
Part 2. With 14 people saying adieu, but hello to 6 fresh faces, 15 Cyclists left via Lower Marsh, Berrylands, New Malden, Motspur park, West Barnes, Merton park, South Wimbledon, to Wimbledon park for Tea & BP, then uphill to Wimbledon village, Copse hill, Malden Golf course, Mount Pleasant, Norbiton, to Kingston. Total 16 Miles, 2 new faces, thanks to Mike F for acting as back marker.
