Eight headed off on the long ride leaving five of us(Les, Bob, Alan, Lilliane and myself) for the short ride. Stan and Donna were to meet us at Langley Park. We left Uxbridge by the Whitehall Road route past Brunel Uni. to Cowley and on to Iver. Up Bangors Road South then onto NCR61 to Langley Park and refreshments while awaiting the arrival of Stan and Donna.
The party now numbering seven we made our way down through the park to George Green the through Wexham to Stoke Green then by Church Lane, where Alan left us for home, and Farthing Green Lane to Wexham Street the on to Black Park for lunch.
Black Park was heaving, something to do with the sun being out, and we threaded our way though the throng to the cafe and lunch, we even found an empty table. Replete we made an attempt to exit the park which was achieved only by Stan correcting a navigational mistake by the leader, yes, I do mean Stan.
Stan and Donna left us at The Stag & Hounds and we headed down Chandlers Hill to Uxbridge.
The milage Uxbridge to Uxbridge 15.5 miles.
Lilliane left us at Uxbridge and Bob, Les, and myself went on out to Denham Country Park for tea. There was a fund raising event in support of the No HS2 in progress but plenty of room for us. After tea Bob departed for home via Denham and Les and myself made our way back to Hillingdon.
The extra milage was 9.3 miles making our total at 24.8.
Overall a good day out.
