Today was down as a 'nominate' ride so having won a couple of rounds of scissor, paper stone with Bernie I took my place as ride leader.
My followers were Dave T Bernie John H and Iain McD.
We headed of in the Windsor direction at Eton joining the Jubilee River to take us to Taplow.
11's was WakePlus water-ski lake. They had obviously anticipated the arrival of some cyclists and had installed a trip wire that I hit knocking over a Yucca plant and some tyres.
Undeterred we ordered our teas & coffee they could only provide instant coffee as their coffee machine would take too long to heat up (at least this is what they told us).
They seemed also reluctant to provide any snacks. I feel sure that this was another ploy to keep out cyclists. The tea was good though!
Feeling refreshed we headed off for Penn past Cliveden & Littleworth common.
At this point John H left the ride.
As we approached Beaconsfield I could see that my followers were looking hungry & thirsty and out of pity I allowed them to vote on whether to continue to Penn which meant a steep climb up Paul’s hill or to stop for lunch at the White Hart Beaconsfield.
They opted for the latter.
The White Hart was welcoming and we installed ourselves next to the open wood fire and enjoyed a good lunch.
The return journey took us through Seer Green, Jordans Chalfont St Peter and finally to West Hyde. Following a long-standing Sunday long ride tradition (established by Dave last week) we enjoyed a second pub stop at the Oaks.
We then ascended the hill into Harefield thence to Ruislip Dave left at this point as Bernie, Iain and I did the last stretch off-road on the Hillingdon trail to West Ruislip Station where we all went our separate ways,
Great sunny Autumnal day and still light when we split up although it was definitely getting a bit chilly.
