For no obvious reason, soups arrived long after roasts; nevertheless we were away by two. Twenty (sic) wind-assisted minutes later some stopped at Squires Holloway Hill for the first 'tea' of 2019.
Home after easy 46 miles; the wind showing its power only in exposed spots like Walton Bridge..

Five of us (Bob, Graham, Lillian, Ed, Vic and me) tackled the long drag up to elevenses at Polesden Lacey on a sunny but very cold morning. Keith arrived just as we were setting off. As some of us were suffering with the cold I cancelled the planned, hillier itinerary, and we took a shorter, flatter route, but still with some pleasant roads, giving at least the illusion of rurality, towards lunch at Epsom. At Fetcham Mill Ponds we paused briefly to admire the bird life, including a cormorant, then we spotted Colin Quemby as we were leaving Ashtead, so it was a more than usually eventful ride! At lunch Ann Bath and Mike Morley joined us and we chatted on until it was time to head our separate ways home. Thanks to all for your company and for braving the cold!

A good turnout a Squires Fulwell and most were there early. Dave was having his full breakfast as usual and was not joining the ride. Ed, Lillian, Graham, Ray. Ann Bath came just to 11's just to promote the C&M annual dinner. Ged, Pete Betts, Paul and Brian Bent.
It was an urban ride but I did keep away from as many main roads as possible. We followed the Crane River trail and then over Hounslow heath. Just after this I punctured. Onto Hayes and Hillingdon nearly to the A40, then back roads into Uxbridge. The usual Wetherspoons fare and a relaxed lunch.
A slightly short route back but still across Hounslow heath and the river Crane. Just before Fulwell the group fragmented and made their own ways home.
A delightful ride through some of West Londons premier Flytiping hotpots. But tempered by good company.
