10 Thames Bridges Audax group ride - Sunday 3rd June

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Following our Veldorome trip in April and the sunny ride to the Waterfront Cafe at Benson a couple of weeks ago, our June group ride will be an Audax event.  For those not familiar with them, Audaxes are touring rides, not races, that are run over a wide variety of distances.  Routes are not signposted but you will be given a route sheet and, more frequently now, a gpx track you can follow.
 
On Sunday 3rd June there is a 100km Audax ride called 10 Thames Bridges starting at Jenner's Riverside Café, Ray Mead Road at 9:00am.  As the name suggests, the route crosses 6 upstream Thames bridges before a cafe stop at Dinton Patures and then heads via Ascot to Windsor for 4 more bridges before returning to Jenner's.  A number of us have enjoyed this ride before as an alternative to the usual Sunday club runs.  You can read of one example here: http://maidenheadcc.org.uk/node/1176  There is also a shorter 64km alternative called Kaf to Kaf which misses out the bridges and starts at 10:00am.
