13th May - Surbiton
Parks and Palace
The ride got renamed and re-planned to park and palace as the day before we found out that the roads in Richmond Park were closed all day for a 10 mile run.
The ride went south via Horton Park, Oxshott, Esher with coffee at Garson Farm. We then took the Thames path from Hampton Court to lunch at The Weir in Walton. After lunch we rode to Hampton Court Palace and then the Thames path to Kingston before completing a circuit of Bushy park where we saw cute baby deer and had a close encounter with Mo Farah on a training run. Weather started cloudy but we had a lovely sunny afternoon.
Then back to ours for tea and cakes.
