Saturday 30th July. A mostly cloudy day with an appearance from the Sun in late afternoon, saw a gathering of 100 plus Cyclists leave the Market place via Skerne Rd, Kingston gate, Richmond park, (gathering more along the way, approx 130 in all), Roehampton gate, Barnes, Thames towpath, Putney bridge, Fulham, Parsons green, Brompton Cemetery, South Kensington, Belgravia to Buckingham Palace. After Lunch, and touring a much improved ‘Central Route’, approx 70 Cyclists gathered on Constitution hill, via Hyde Park, Serpentine path, Kensington Gardens, South Kensington, Brompton Cemetery, Putney bridge, Thames towpath, Barnes, Roehampton gate, Richmond park, Kingston gate to the Market place. Special thanks to Steve for back-marking, and all the other Marshals, it made for a very enjoyable day.
