This Sunday our monthly ride will head north to Crane Park and beyond. The Crane Park riverside is at it’s best at this time of year and is a delight to ride through.
The ride will start at 10:00am outside the Hand & Spear pub near Weybridge Station, and will be about 30 miles.
The route crosses Walton Bridge, through Shepperton via the delightful ford in Watersplash Road, around the back of Sunbury, then through Hanworth Park and on to Crane Park. Following the Crane River for 3 miles we reach Twickenham. From there we pick up the River Thames for a mile or so in front of Marble Hill House, before crossing the bridge into Richmond. Up the hill and across the park we will stop at the Boho Cafe for a light lunch. From Kingston we will take the Portsmouth Road and the back route through Thames Ditton and Hersham to bring us back to Weybridge.
Total distance about 30 miles. The full route is described here: https://www.strava.com/routes/6993782
The route is on-road or on good quality cycle paths for the whole length so a road bike or hybrid would be best for this ride.
If you want to come on the ride, you can just turn up.
