Walton warm up

30mi (48km) climb 623ft (190m)

Kevin, Lil’ Nick, Big Nick and Andy decided on a flat spin out to Walton via Hersham. This made for a nice route out and some good roads esp. Burwood Road, a long straight drag with a little double rise to hurt your legs if you push too hard. 

Four cyclists at The 1955 Club

Enjoying coffee and snacks at The 1955 Club

The coffee stop was ‘The 1955 Club’ for some apricot flapjack (croissant for Big Nick) and coffee outside — continental style. 

We returned via West Molesey, but felt fresh enough for an extension through Bushy Park and Richmond Park, with everyone’s favourite little Richmond ramp — Nightingale Lane (at least for Lil’ Nick and Andy — Kevin and Big Nick were on a recovery day).
