Off to Maidenhead

September 4, 2005

Seven out today. One new rider who is planning to ride from John O’Groats to Lands end next year so is starting to get back into shape. Since some had not ridden during August it was decided to do a flat run out to Windsor. This turned into a flat run to Maidenhead where we found a nice Cafe, even if they did insist on putting the sugar in your tea for you (if you took it) which made the logistics of getting five cups of tea harder than it should have been. I think it was called “Dave’s Cafe” or some such. Would go back there.

Back via Eton and Datchet. I’ve never been to Eton so this was all new and quite impressive to see how the other half live. Saw Brunel’s magnificent bridge over the Thames and had a great ride back getting back early. I ended up doing 66 miles but I think the official total was more like 58.

  1. Chris you should have kept going along the A4 and popped into Twyford where we would have made you an excellent mug of tea. Yes the Brunel bridge is amazing we often do a walk under it that leads out to Bray and back.
