Bread pudding ride to Wraysbury

DSCN0376

River Mole near Esher

Sunday 3rd November, a bright start, with increasing Clouds & 1 or 2 very light Misty showers saw 25 Cyclists leave via Kingston Bridge, Bushy Park, Hampton, Hanworth, Feltham, Bedfont, Stanwell, Stanwell moor, Poyle, to Wraysbury for lunch at ‘the Perseverence’ about to leave the Leader finds the ‘P fairy has paid a visit,- maybe because he had been a bit Jocular about the Pub name before the start-, after several minutes of fruitless grunting & heaving, still unable to remove the Tyre from the Rim, it was felt prudent for the main group to proceed with a fresh leader, meanwhile assisted by Rob, with a bit of fruity language, & more perseverence, finally the Tyre was off, to find it wasn’t a ‘Tubeless Tyre after all, although stuck to the Rim in a similar fashion, still more fun removing the thorn, refitted with a new tube, could we catch the main group before Tea ? Via Hythe end, Staines, -with a small section heading for the Train, including our Back marker-, Thames towpath, Penton Hook, Laleham, a couple of fleeting glimpse’s, that might be, no not in Laleham, had they stayed on the Towpath, following the Thames towards Chertsey Bridge, Yes, there they are, Shepperton, -with the 2nd visit from the ‘P fairy’-, Walton Bridge to Gino’s Cafe for Tea & Bread Pudding, Walton, yet another visit from you know who, Esher, Weston Green, Giggshill Green, & yet again a 4th visit from the ‘P fairy’,(all different victims), Portsmouth Rd to Kingston. Total 32 Miles, thanks to Will, Jon W &  Andrea for Back marking duties, & others for marking corners, thanks to Mike F for filling in as Leader, thanks to John D for the BP, special thanks to Jon W for assisting with repairs. Anyone with influence, please have a word with the right god’s to resume only occasional visit’s from the P fairy, 😉
