Saturday 28th July, a bright warm Day saw approx 70 Cyclists leave the Market Place, via Skerne Rd, Kingston gate of Richmond Park, Ham Cross- where a phalanx of Police Motor Bikes were once again on a Recce for Sunday’s London Surrey events-, with a very strong tailwind, (could that be turned off for the return journey ?) also gathering more Cyclists, (approx 85 in all), White lodge, Roehampton Gate, Barnes, Thames Towpath, Putney Bridge, Bishops Park, Hurlingham, Parsons Green, Eel Brook Common, Brompton Cemetery, South Kensington, Belgravia, Victoria to Buckingham Palace. After a well earned lunch for the Marshal’s, & enjoying much of the central route, the search for the start point for the return ride, eventually found the right Tree, with around 40 Cyclists -including some who had got the Train into London-, collecting some 20 more on Constitution Hill, following behind the Ealing return ride, via Hyde Park, Kensington Gdns, South Kensington, -finally saying farewell to the Ealing group-, Brompton Cemetery, Parsons Green, Fulham, Putney Bridge, Thames Towpath, Barnes, Roehampton Gate of Richmond Park, now with a strong Headwind, 😦 to Kingston Gate, to return to the Market place. Thanks to all the Marshal’s, especially Steve D as Back marker, & Rob as ‘Sweeper’ looking after small mechanical problems.
