Riders will assemble in front of Brunel University Business School and after our traditional group photo will head south picking up the cycle path towards West Drayton and Heathrow. Our route then turns eastward and we navigate through Hounslow, we pass the home of English rugby and cross the Thames at Richmond bridge. Our first ‘climb’ at Richmond hill is a blip after the monster gradients that we have been enjoying on earlier days. We enter Richmond Park at Richmond Gate and then head west into Roehampton. Our route takes us south of East Putney, through Battersea and we cross the Thames again at Chelsea bridge.
The route then passes west of Victoria, in front of Buckingham Palace and around St James’s Park. Our final crossing of the Thames is at Westminster Bridge and we head north of Lambeth towards Southwark and our finish party at Flat Iron Square.
Day riders will need to make their own arrangements to get home.
