Nineteen loiterers met at Uxbridge with nine tempted to join Lawrie’s mystery short ride and eight following Bernie into the wilds of Berkshire.
Gerry, Jackie, Melissa, Jim H, Stuart, Dave T, Phil H, Chris, and myself followed Lawrie out of Uxbridge towards Cowley and on to a track alongside the River Pinn. Leaving the river we headed towards Royal Lane and Horton Road leading to Stockley Road. Leaving the Stockley Road we followed Lawrie by one of his devious routes skirting Hayes to enter Cranford Park through which we pedalled to elevenses at Moniz Cafe on the A4 Bath Road.
After coffee it was back across the Bath Road and along Cranford Lane en route to Harmondsworth, along The Duke of Northumberlands River, across the Bath Road into Longford. We went on though Poyle to Stanwell Road and onto lunch at The Five Bells, Horton. We enjoyed a pleasant lunch break in the pub’s garden Where we were joined by Roy on his new bike and numerous wasps some of which are no longer with us.
After lunch Lawrie led us through Wraysbury, stopping briefly to check out the newly refurbished George PH - no time for a drink! We then stopped to admire Wraysbury windmill which is not what it seems. It is a mock windmill built in 1996 as a house, styled after Lacey Green mill and used recycled timbers, including some from Tilbury dock.
We left Wraysbury along Station Road heading towards Poyle and once over the motorway we urned of onto the bridleway which would lead us into Harmondsworth Country Park through which we travelled criss crossing the Wraybury River and the Colne exiting on Swan Lane, West Drayton. A short ride along Thorney Mill Road brought us to our tea stop at Thorney Park Golf Club. after another pleasant loiter in the sun we made our way off road to Little Britain Lake and on to Cowley where the group dispersed
The Mystery?? It certainly is!
