It's my ride today, and I'm struggling to work up any enthusiasm after the recent Ipswich escapade, It's Father's Day, a fictitious anniversary, but it will probably fill the pubs. In case of problems, I plan a garden centre lunch, which puts off a potential follower who wants pub grub. so with just two fellow travellers, Chris Kinsey and John MacMillan, we head for Chandlers Hill.
Following a familiar route we end up at Coffee, Eats and Treats, Farnham Common for elevenses. We are soon joined by a tube train driver, Iain MacDonald delayed presumably by a tube train. After refreshments we head into the wind towards Burnham and route 61 followed by Bray, Holyport and Paley Street. I've shaved quite a bit off the original route, but it's still over forty miles long. They are fortunately flat miles.
We arrive at Moss End Garden Centre, a couple of miles north of Bracknell and have our lunch. We have a following wind on the way home, and the sun comes out briefly. I did contemplate shortening the route even more by taking a track from Maidens Green to Drift road, but it could be muddy given all the rain we've had, so I stick to tarmac and go the long way round to Fifield, Dorney and Eton Wick. Following the railway, we reach the Jubilee River. I like the barriers on the track, it's the only way I can guarantee to stay in front. John leaves us at the A4 in Slough and the rest of us head for Iver Golf club.
Iain asks me if he has time for a beer. What makes him think I'll sink a steaming hot mug of coffee any quicker?.We are soon back on our bikes, battling concrete barriers, brambles, nettles, discarded mattresses, and inconveniently parked vehicles, on what was once a through road to Mansion Lane. We disperse around Cowley, a good ride. No torrential rain or thunderstorms..............bonus.
