Ride to Windsor

With it being Easter this was always going to be a short ride. Family commitments abound for all. We had two new riders but that still only made five. We headed out to Windsor via Ascot and the usual "sprint" through the park which left the new riders in for a bit of a surprise when it all kicked off.

Slight rain did not dampen the ride and the tail wind on the return made for a fast and furious return to Molesey.

53 miles.

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.

To windsor via Tite hill

Only three were out today. I was actually surprised we got three as it was dark when I left and the weather forecast was for wind and rain. We decided to head to Windsor as one of our number was going to continue on to High Wycombe. Going via Tite Hill in Egham to add a bit of a challenge. The rain held off until we were leaving the cafe, but at least we then had the wind behind us for the run home.

Ended up doing just 43 miles, the last three hurting into a gale back from Molesey to Walton.
