Big Summer 2022 ride

cycle ride in Windsor

Cycle Ride July 2022

Well we knew it was going to be hard cycle ride, but the weather should have been dry and overcast, but turned into dry and sunny and warm… so the ride started out from Windsor in perfect conditions but a few hours later it was getting hard work.

There was just the three of us, David, Colin and me, but we had a really good ride and a catch up on life and work. I love these days out because I feel like I’ve really done something different from the normal and got some exercise in.

The route was from Windsor through Bracknell to Crowthorne – first coffee stop – then out through Wokingham to Henley and Marlow – secound coffee stop for cake as well – then there is a massive climb out into the Chilterns which is ok until half way there is a hairpin bend thats is at about 45 o thats not much fun, its the gift hill that keeps on giving! Then we went downhill into Cookham and along the Thames back towards Windsor. Yes, it got a bit hot by the end but really enjoyable ride. 50 miles went passed in a blur.

Colin had to stop at Henley to get the train – his new bike should be on order by now! Yep, you’re going to have to give that bike back to your daughter now!

We are hoping to draw attention to the charity – Children’s Air Ambulance – because they do so much for the NHS but get all funding from the public. We can’t get loads of money from them but if we can highlight what they do then the job is done. If you can a small donation would be most appreciated as they really do the most amazing job of taking children around the country when speed and or comfort is of the utmost importance.

See you out for the next ride!
