Windsor via Savill Garden - Easy Level

  • Apr 14, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will visit the beautiful Savill Garden before heading to Windsor.

Described as Britain's finest ornamental garden, this ride will be extra special.

http://www.theroyallandscape.co.uk/gardens-and-landscape/the-savill-garden/

Upon arrival in Windsor, we will stop for a pub lunch. Those with the energy can complete the ride by looping back to Richmond Park.

The ride will be subject to weather conditions.

We recommend that you should bring your helmet, lights, lunch money, puncture kit and spare inner tube.

As usual, we meet in front of the coffee shop by Roehampton Gate.

Priority given to RPCC members who have been on previous rides and with rank levels.

If you are unable to attend, please alert the host(s) or amend your RSVP accordingly. Failure to do will result in you being omitted on future rides.

    A lovely day out with lovely people but definitely not easy level - depends where you are starting from - maybe easy for the regular riders but not easy if you are trying to encourage new people. I am a regular cyclist but it was very fast for me and I felt I was holding people back all the time. But - I did enjoy it and beautifully led by Michael.

      And the Wind was still against us on the way back so you did not miss out ;)

      Well done Ruth, at least you didn't have to battle the headwind for 55miles! Maybe it's time for me to put up a ride to Brighton for the lovely Ealing Friday Riders? :-)

    According to the GPS data, we averaged a leisurely 12mph led by Michael in wonderful sunshine.
    The pub lunch was much needed after the hours on the bike seat, &
    Ruth's nicely decorated bicycle with flowers brightened up an already sunny day.
    Rule one of puncture club: never talk about punctures!
    The only downside was having to navigate the throngs of Sunday strollers, children and dogs through Windsor Great Park. The sun seemed to bring everybody out.
    All in all it was a great day's cycling.

    Beautiful route through Windsor Park!

    Well, according to my rating, easy+ is someone who can do over 15mph average on the flat - or maybe someone's just being childish?

    Ride through Windsor great park always a pleasure, especially in good company.

      You haven't ridden for so long you've slipped from advanced/elite to easy!?!?

    The outward route passes very close to Hampton court palace and we could make a short detour if anyone wishes to stop. Let me know on Sunday morning. We also pass close to St anns hill, ditto.

    Really sorry, I signed up for Brighton. Sorry for the last minute cancelation

    April 12, 2013

    • Michael

      I did wonder how you were going to do both :-)

      April 12, 2013

    • Ruth M.

      Hmm - and clearly not easy level either methinks!

      April 12, 2013

  • Steve J.

    Really really sorry! Don't like dropping out for things I've signed up to. Have had a very heavy cold, though, and not recovered enough to tackle the ride. Will see you soon!

    April 12, 2013

  • Maria

    I see the plan is to go through Kingston bridge. Could I wait for you there? It would save me a few extra miles...

    April 10, 2013

  • Michael

    As there is a waiting list for this event can you please review your RSVP and if you are unable to attend can you please amend it accordingly.

    Last minute cancellations often leave too little time for those on the waiting list to make arrangements to attend.

    April 9, 2013

  • Ruth M.

    I'll be there - as long as definitely easy level!

    April 9, 2013

    • Jai

      It's definitely easy level. Don't worry.

    April 6, 2013

    • Wai

      Hi Louise, yes we limit our ride numbers for safety reasons.
