Not quite going to Maidenhead.

Only five riders this morning and a deceptively cold morning it was too. In one of those strange coincidences I was already thinking we had not been to Windsor for a while when someone suggested we head out that way for a flat run to Maidenhead. However somewhere after Ascot we got all competitive as there was a group of riders up the road so we missed our left turn and ended up back in Windsor. Once we arrived at the Cafe I was actually very pleased as I realised just how cold my hands were. Nothing some Tea, which in the Top Twenty, as I have mentioned before means as much as you can drink and something to eat could not cure.
Then we returned via Old Windsor, it is easy to forget what a fabulous place Windsor until you cycle through it on a clear crisp (and yes cold) Sunday morning. Then home via Datchett, Staines and Shepperton.
50 miles, very gentle. Not going to get fit enough for the planned trip to Ventoux by doing rides like this however much I engjoyed it.
