Ten loiterers Stuart,Brian, Margaret, Ray W, Alec, Stan, John J, Jane, Luke, and myself left Uxbridge by George Street on the medium ride led by Stuart. We d headed up to Uxbridge Common, down around Swakeleys Lake to Ickenham. Crossing Swakeleys Road the route took us on to ride along the River Pinn (which Google Maps choose to call the Colne) and then through Park Wood to Ruislip Lido. We pedalled round the lake and on up to Haste Hill Golf Club of elevenses. Here we were joined by Gill, Melissa, and Dave M. As we were about to leave when we were stopped by a lady from the golf club who wanted to take our group picture, well who wouldn’t.
Taking our leave from Haste Hill Stuart led us through the streets of Northwood and up to and through Oxhey Wood, past Oxhey Park Golf Club en route to lunch at The Royal Oak, Watford Heath.
After lunch Stuart led us down towards Bushey then Watford to join the Colne Valley Path. Here we had a mishap, I was looking behind as the group in front stopped and I ran into the back of Dave M, no one hurt but it did damage Dave’s rear wheel and he headed off home.
Leaving the Colne Valley we we climbed through North Watford and descended into the Gade Valley to join the Grand Union Canal at Cassiobury Park. We followed the canal towpath down past Rickmansworth the the Coy Carp PH were we stopped for refreshments. Onward we stayed on the towpath towards Denham where the group split with some heading across the canal towards Ickenham and we headed through the country park towards Uxbridge.
A good days cycling in good company.
