My ride, eight of us leave Uxbridge heading south. Geoff C, Iain Mac, John W, Jean G, Sandra G, Margaret C, Alan P and me.We pass by Richings Park and through Datchet, on our way to our coffee stop at Windelsoria, Windsor. For a couple of us, this is surprisingly, a first visit to this Wetherspoons pub.
The next leg of our journey takes us to Jealotts Hill, the long way round, via Paley Street and Shurlock Row; but as Sandra mentions, it is the flattest route she has encountered for some time. The New Leathern Bottle is our lunch stop. We have a bit of a wait for our grub, because the sole barman is also the chef. It's all worth it when the food arrives, and there are no complaints about the amount, quality or price.
After lunch we take a short cut through what turns out to be an agricultural R&D site. A man in a van gently reminds us that we really shouldn't be there without permission. Whoops! Another wrong turn takes into a dead end track at Maidens Green. We turn back onto the main road blissfully unaware that Iain is taking a comfort break. At Fifield, someone mentions that Sandra is waiting at the Drift junction for Iain to appear. John, Alan and I return to Sandra, who is still waiting. A friendly driver offers to search Drift Road, without success. A phone call to Iain reveals that he is somewhere between Winkfield and Maidens Green. All the while, our fellow Loiterers back at Fifield are gradually getting hypothermic, so it's agreed that they should make their way home without us. Sandra manages to steer Iain in our direction and we are soon reunited. The now five of us head towards Fifield. Near Monkey Island, I abandon my planned route and head for Dorney Court and some refreshment.
Our journey continues through Eton Wick and the College grounds to route 61, where Sandra leaves for home. The rest of us head for Iver and disperse. It was quite chilly today with the odd hail shower, not quite enough to warrant donning our rain gear; although Sandra did try her "rainlegs" from time to time.
