5th April RCC Ride to Windsor - New River and Great Park

Date: Sunday, April 05, 2009
Time: 10.00am
Place: Richmond Station
Description: Taking 10.11 train to Windsor from Richmond, the 11 riders crossed to Eton and followed the cycle path along the landscaped flood relief channel before joining NCR 4 to cross the Thames at Dorney. After pub lunch at Fifield, we entered Windsor Great Park at Blacknest Gate and cycled alongside the lake past the cascade and ruins from Leptis Magna. (Lybia). The rather busy path took us to Saville Gardens for tea and traffic-free roads led us back to Windsor. A red kite swooped low overhead assessing our fitness - exhausted cyclists forming a major part of their diet.
