Amazing weather! 40 mile training ride which we basically made up as we went along, through Richmond Park which was heaving with cyclists, then joined the river all the way to Hampton and back along the other side. Such a nice day! I road tested the padded shorts as well today, and I can report back that they create one comfy ride. They are not flattering in the slightest but I am prepared to forego this for the sake of a cushioned bum. We should have crossed the river at Kingston on the way down to cycle on the north side of the river, as the south side has pesky no cycling signs, whereas the Hampton Court side is a speedy zip up to Richmond. Ne’er mind. For some reason I entered the ride on a running website to check the distance,
maybe someone will like a really long run!
