Long ride, Sunday 8th Feb 2015.
Chris Kinsey takes the lead. Followers are: John Hare, John MacMillan, Cliff Jones, Dave Taylor and me.
Chris leads us through Ickenham, Ruislip and Northwood. At Batchworth we cycle via pavement (not sure of the legality of this) through Rickmansworth, to Croxley Green, where we refresh ourselves at the Artichoke pub. Breakfasts are had but fortunately no choking, hearty or otherwise is observed.
Onwards and upwards past Chipperfield. John H leaves us here. After a sharp right at Tower Hill, we descend into the valley crossing the Grand Union Canal. Our lunch stop is The Crown at Berhamsted. There are two possible routes from where we are: the scenic but hilly route via Potten End or the flat one along the main road. We are nearly at the top of the hill before we realise that Cliff has taken the main road. Never mind we all meet up again at the pub. It's is very busy and there's quite a wait for grub.
As we leave I realise we are down to three: Chris, John and me. I don't know whether Cliff and Dave had got wind of the return route or just fancied another pint. So up a stonking great climb we go, White Hill/Whelpley Hill, through Flaunden, Stoney Lane, then a welcome descent through the Chalfonts to Uxbridge and home. Glorious weather, wall to wall sunshine and not the biting wind we had gotten used to.
