Windsor Castle (64miles/102km, 1892ft/576m)

Join us for a cultural ride out to Windsor Castle. This is a very flat ride but great practice for long distance cycling. As there are so many great cafes we typically stop for lunch and a coffee, so you will have plenty of time for rest at the half way point.

***https://ridewithgps.com/routes/13727524 (starting at Richmond) ***

Please meet at the Colicci Cafe, Richmond Park at 8.45 for a prompt 9.00 departure. We’re keen to leave on time, so if you arrive late you’ll have to catch us up.

Cafe Stop: Cinnamon Café

Train stations on route: Virginia Water, Windsor

Estimated Time – 5.5 hrs – 2.30pm finish.

***** If you haven’t already, please read our Do’s and Don’ts carefully before RSVPing. ******

**This is a Purple ride**
https://claphamcycle.com/abilityguide
• The pace will be ~25km/hr (15.5 miles/hr) on the flats.
• The average pace for the whole ride will be ~23km/hr (14 miles/hr). Please check your average ride speed on Strava to check you will be ok with this.
• Road bikes are strongly recommended, but hybrids are fine if you can keep the pace.
• If you’re unable to keep the pace, and are slowing the rest of the group down, then we may encourage you to ride alone at your own pace or help you find a train station.

*****
