Our route takes us through quiet residential streets in Hanwell and on to the Grand Union canal. We follow the towpath down to Brentford and then ride on through Syon Park to reach the river at Isleworth. A gentle riverside ride through Twickenham brings us to Richmond Bridge where we cross and make our way to the popular Tide Tables cafe. After a refreshment break, the return ride takes us through the back roads of Richmond to Kew Bridge and then back to Ealing. This is a lovely quiet ride, almost totally flat and largely traffic-free, as well as offering good company and tasty cakes!
