We will be setting off from Cobham RBL to go west to Englefield Green via Ripley and then Woking with 300 metres of the Basingstoke canal and a super duper new bridge for cyclists across the canal. 19 miles and 814 ft of ascent total. The return ends in Hampton Court via Staines and Bushey Park, 15.4 miles and 234 ft of ascent. I am hoping for sunshine to show off the countryside and profusion of bluebells at their best. Lunch stop is at The Rose and Olive Branch which has new managers and has been completely refurbished. It now has six tables outside the pub under cover, in the shade of the building. In the rear garden there are twelve tables in the sun (hopefully). Ladies conveniences are inside to the left at the back and Gents are first left before you enter the entrance. Remember your masks. If you would like a tea stop there is The Pheasantry with toilets in Bushey Park and at Hampton Court there is Dish cafe or Molesey Lock cafe again with toilets.
If you would like to join the ride please let me know by Monday 3rd May with your lunch choice so I can pre - order the food for your group.
