September’s bike ride didn’t happen – sorry I was just too busy to organise it. And now that the days are shorter it’s no longer practical to do it mid-week, so we’re moving to a weekend slot instead.
October’s bike ride will be on Sunday 18th at 11:00am. We’ll start from outside the Hand and Spear at Weybridge Station as usual. The plan this month is to proceed down to Weybridge and then pick up National Cycle Route 4 and follow it through Chertsey to Staines. We’ll stop for lunch at a pub and then return along the towpath on the northern side of the river to Laleham and then Shepperton, finally crossing the river at the ferry and then back to Weybridge Station.
The total distance will be around 15 miles and will take about 3 – 4 hours depending on the pace and how long we spend in the pub.
The route is mostly designated cycle lanes most of which are shared pavement, the towpath sections are well surfaced so road tyres will be ok.
If you want to come along it’s free and you don’t need to let us know in advance, just turn up on Sunday at 11:00 outside the Hand and Spear.
All ages are welcome but under 13’s ought to be accompanied by a responsible adult.
