This ride went through Richmond Park via Putney, and met the Thames River Tow Path. This was followed past Hampton Court Palace and down to Weybridge.
From there we picked up the River Wey Navigation Path and continued down past where the Basingstoke Canal heads off towards Woking.
The full ride was about 30 miles but there were several points along the route where trains could be caught back to London such as Weybridge and Woking. The path was very flat and had a good surface, with the only hill being at Richmond. There were also plenty of nice pubs with beer gardens to rest at along the way!
Those that made the whole distance caught a train back from Woking.
Thanks to Jon Creighton for leading this ride.
