There was a definite chill in the air as nine loiterers gathered at Uxbridge. Six set off for Chertsey and Lawrie and Dave B joined me for a shorter ride.
We set off past Brunel University and on down Royal Lane to Horton Lane and on to West Drayton Station Road. Normally we would bypass West Drayton Station Road by going over the canal and railway using Horton Bridge but due to Crossrail work it is being replaced. At present the cycle track has been removed leaving only steep steps. Therefore this route is best avoided until the replacement bridge is ready, they say about Easter.
We rode on through Sipson, Harmondsworth, through the BA Waterside Park to Longford then on to Stanwell Moor and the Vermeulen's Garden Centre for elevenses. Leaving Stanwell Moor, the sun had made an appearance, towards Horton we turned off along the track down to Moor Lane, Staines. Passing under the Staines Bypass we decided to explore a track running west, nice track but flooded in one spot with flowing water. Looking at Google Earth later it seems to be an overflow runoff, should be OK to use in dryer times.
Back on track we made our way down to the Wraysbury Road and on to lunch at The Perseverance PH. The food and service was good.
Replete we mounted our bikes and headed off round The Green and on to Welley Road and Horton Road en route to Colnebrook. Crossing the A4 we headed for tea at Thorney Park Golf Club via Old Slade Lane.
Leaving the golf club we rode the cycle route to Trout Lane and on to Royal Lane after which we dispersed.
