July ride-out - Shakespeare Country
The July Social Ride is taking us up into Shakespeare Country.
Total Mileage is 180 miles. This is a fairly technical and progressive ride using good country and major link roads. Time in the saddle will be between 5 & 6 hours.
Leaving from the BP Service Station / Black Bean Cafe - Maidenhead Road S/Stn - Maidenhead Road WINDSOR SL4 5EL (https://goo.gl/maps/7srTmXWr6a2Vwjcz8) Prompt at 9.00 with a full tank of petrol.
From Windsor we are travelling via Marlow and up to Bicester for a coffee break at the Blue Diamond Garden Centre (50 miles).

I anticipate that quite a number of people will choose to go their own way from here - however, if there is sufficient interest the final stretch of the route will be second opportunity to ride the morning’s roads, retracing route back to terminate at Windsor (36 miles).
Offers to act as back marker would be appreciated
