A jaunty joust to the Tiltyard for tea

Saturday 22nd December
10:15 for a 10:30 depart
Location: Teddington Station
Led by: Susan Scorer
Phone: 07976 294626

Starting at Teddington Station (by the bike racks) at 10.15 for a 10:30 depart. Crossing the river at Teddington Lock, this ride makes its way to Hampton Court for coffee at the Tiltyard Cafe and then back through Bushy Park. This is a ride for everyone, about 9 miles.

In case you were interested, tiltyards were built for jousting matches, the one at Hampton Court was built by Henry VIII and the cafe is named after it. There is also a Tiltyard Tower, where the jousting could be watched. Not all of this info came from Wikipedia.

South West LCC Xmas Ride - Report

Well, it rained and then it didn't but by that time, the Italian coffee shop in Sheen had biased our opinion towards the cold wet outside. We set off for the White Cross warmed and excited by the coffee and arrived last, again. Richmond Park was quite windy, that was our excuse. The White Cross was filled with cyclists and there was another warm and friendly atmosphere welcoming us along with a warm and filling lunch - we highly recommend the apple crumble and custard. The pics are proof of how much we didn't want to leave the warmth...

South West LCC Xmas Ride

Sunday 9th December
10:00 for a 10:15 depart
Location: Mortlake Green
Led by: Susan Higham
Phone: 07976 294626

Come and join us on Mortlake Green next to the train station at 10:00 with a 10:15 depart for a ride through Richmond and Bushy Park. The ride ends at the White Cross pub in Richmond where we will meet up with other local borough groups. The route will be mainly on road with some towpath and is suitable for all bikes. If you can make the ride but not the pub (or vice versa!) that's fine. We should reach the pub around 12:00.

Merry Christmas!!
