London to Windsor bike ride

(viewed 2918 times)
Bookmark and Share
Louise and I rode 45 miles from our flat to Windsor. The actual ride
started at Richmond, about five miles in, we went through there at
about 9:45. We followed the river a little bit to Hampton and then
rode out into some lovely parts of Middlesex and Surrey in a
wiggly route taking in Sunbury, Shepperton, Chobham and Virginia
Water, avoiding the centres of those places at all costs. We got to
Windsor at 14:10, we indulged on the breaks a bit :-). Louise has a
bar bag which we stuffed with sandwiches, snacks and smoothies, on
top of two water bottles and a bottle of elderflower cordial.

Ahh yes, the Trek held up very well. A pleasure to ride, quick, agile and light as a very light thing. I recommend you all buy one immediately. I did feel a bit bad that Louise had to push The Aged Raleigh around the whole route, it's easily twice as heavy, especially with all our sandwiches.

Top speed was 33 mph. I've decided to do miles on this bike, after doing KM on The Aged Raleigh.

Cambodia: Yes, Ho Chi Minh City to Pnomh Penh in five days. Then they take us to Angkor Wat by boat. We're going to stay there for a few days too.

Pictures: I'm very happy with the action shot (there are a few other attempts). Highlight worthy IMHO :-).

Just finished riding the Trek to work this morning. About 32 minutes, equal to my previous best, but with less kind traffic lights this time, so it must be doing something right.

I'm planning to try a new route, courtesy of the TFL journey planner, but I thought I'd do the old one once, just to check :-).
