RCC Rides for Explorers : Sunday 7th March

Grand Union Canal

Meet :Richmond, Little Green, by library 10.30am

Description: We cut through Syon Park to Brentford and follow the canal tow-path northwards .... A preliminary ride found the tow-path west of Hanwell dangerously muddy (Yes I did fall in) so plan B is being devised. Lunch in canal-side or other pub.

Four of us met up and headed up the canal. We avoided the muddy parts by cutting off along the Brent valley with the help of Andy's local knowledge. We passd the isolated 12c Perivale Church and after a warming Lunch at Starvin Marvin's at Perivale rejoined the canal at Horsendon Hill. From here on in the surface is good and led us to a footbridge through Paddington Station. From here we returned via Kensington Gardens, Hammersmith and Richmond Park. Enjoyable day with brilliant blue sky but icy wind.
