Bread Pudding ride to Battersea

IMGP0986

near Richmond gate, Richmond Park

Sunday 7th January. A bright but cold day saw 22 Cyclists ready for the first ride of 2018, leave via Lower Marsh, Berrylands, New Malden, Motspur Park, with an altercation between an ‘impatient Van Driver’, and John today’s back marker, causing a delay, with Police also stopping to take details, all back together, Cannons hill, Lower Morden, Merton park, South Wimbledon, Wandle path, Earlsfield, -with a strong Headwind,- Wandsworth Common, Clapham Common, to Battersea for lunch at ‘the Asparagus’, (Wetherspoons), then Thames Path, Wandsworth,- with a mass of Motorists enjoying the wait to get into the Refuse dump, – Wandsworth Park, Putney, Barnes Common, Roehampton, Roehampton Gate, Richmond Park,- with a Queue out the door of the Cafe, a strategic decision was made to try Pembroke Lodge, a slightly shorter wait, but still entailing Tea & BP ‘alfresco’, but fantastic, if slightly hazy views over West London, then to Kingston Gate, to return to the Market place. Total 27 Miles, 1 new face. Thanks once again to John E for back marking, & others for corner marking, also thanks to John D, (back from his travels), for the Bread pudding.

  1. Happy New Year KCC! Today we joined Bristol CTC’s Somerset ride with added winter sunshine and a tough headwind on the way back:-)
