Last ride of 2006
By user12625760 on Dec 31, 2006
I had given up on anyone else turning up for a New Years eve ride and was riding home with thoughts of buying a Sunday Paper and cooking breakfast (second breakfast obviously) when my phone rang. One other rider was up but a bit late so I rode over to his house and from there we rode in the increasing rain to Windsor via the Great Park.
The Top Twenty Cafe was closed which was a shock and I failed to note when it reopens so we went into the centre of Windsor for a Cup of Tea and watch the tourists being shown around in the rain. To my horror the cafe supplied tea in a cup with a tea bag. I would have thought being in one of the biggest “English” tourist traps you would know how to serve Tea. In their defence they did give a free refill.
When we left they rain had eased and we picked up the tail wind for a fast ride back.
44 miles 15.8mph average.
