Forecast for the weather said it would be a nice and sunny day and it surely was, perfect for cycling.
Fuelled up with porridge with a huge spoon full of nutella & plenty of water. I didn't want to be doing the "Cramp Dance" later on tonight.
Me and the legend would be heading near to Windsor by car so we headed out early. Just about arrived at the parking spot same time as my cycling partner in crime, Mr. O. Not long after Andy L, Anne M & David P, Andy L & Michael B arrived and chatted a little then headed into town to the main meeting point.

|Flooded Rugby Pitch
|Windsor Royal Shopping Centre
|Meeting the LBC Gang
|Final planning of the route
As always the sight of so many Bromptons in one place always draws the attention of the public and as always as me and the legend always draw whispers of Bumble B or Bee.
Our first little stop was at The Hawker Hurricane. A full size Hurricane fighter plane.
|Just a little muddy still in places
|Entering Windsor Great Park.
Stopping off for the now classic Brompton line up photo. Has to be done with so many in one place.
A couple of now smallish hills and we heading into abit more muddy areas.

I have to say I kinda got into "The Zone", I was so focused on my cadence and breathing that I almost went past the pub we was having out lunch at. It felt damn good as I like to go back to hills I have in the past and see how I do. Well I really killed this one compared to the other times so I was extremely happy about it and gave my self a present of a really nice Fish & Chip dinner.

Was another GREAT day out with my Brompton buddies and have to thank Andy L, David P for the navigation & organization of the day, even making sure the weather was perfect.
