Royal Windsor Trail - Saturday 16 March

Join us as we walk a royal trail around the fields and woods of Windsor. Home to kings and queens since William the Conqueror, Windsor is dominated by its castle, which, as benefitting a monarch, is the largest in the kingdom.

Our trail will take us first to the calming waters of the Thames, where we will explore Runnymede, the site at which medieval barons forced a king to sign the Magna Carta. From there we will walk into the Great Park. Dating back more than 900 years, this former royal hunting ground is an area of scenic woods, beautiful lakes, and pleasant pastures.

As the day draws to a close we will the follow the 'Long Walk', once described by Jonathan Swift as 'the finest avenue I ever saw'. Lined with oak trees, it will offer a spectacular ending to our hike as we approach Windsor Castle for one of the most photographed views in the country.

Having arrived in Windsor, we will celebrate the day's endeavours, as we usually do, with food and drink in a local pub.

    Thanks Kieran and Tania for organising, it was a great walk which included rain, sunshine, boggy mud, knee deep water, scenic views, great people and lovely pub dinner, I didn’t realise there are so many memorials tucked away in nooks and crannies.

    A packed day with lots of good emotion and great people. There was solemnity at the Air Forces Memorial, excitement (I think!) at running through the mud at Runnymede, and awe at the breathtaking view of Windsor Castle from Snow Hill. All this accompanied by enjoyable conversation on the trail and in the pub!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
