A group of about nine rode the 90km circuit from Mimbridge, although the number varied from time to time. There were plenty out on the other two rides also and we all came together briefly again at the Windsor Farm Shop where elevenses were taken.
The conditions were perfect: it was a really good day for riding – quite mild, very little wind and bright for the most part. There was still an amazing amount of water around though fortunately we were only forced to splash our way through a large-ish puddle once. The Thames looked very full still.
Although there’s a lot of built up areas to pass through, John Murdoch led the group along some delightful lanes once we had escaped the Windsor and Eton area. We headed off into Buckinghamshire and passed through some pretty villages, notably Cookham with its many pubs, and up and over a few small hills, which broke up the rhythm of this mainly flat ride. Taken at a good pace, several of us will remember the ride for some time, I feel! A great day!
