Location: Teddington Station

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.
