Locks, Docks & V-Twin Barrels

15th April 2018

We’ll be meeting at 611KR from 9am with a ride briefing at 9.30am sharp, before heading west on the A4 and the M4. Turning off the M4 at Junction 5 for Datchet, continuing through Windsor and along some excellent roads, we’ll then be stopping for a quick fuel top-up (for the machines with smaller tanks only) just before the mid-point and then coffee in the beautiful village of Sonning Eye, over-looking the River Thames (if it’s good enough for George Clooney to use as his local it’ll do for us nicely I’m sure)

With rider’s and machine’s all suitably refuelled we’ll continue on through several of Berkshire’s finest villages, criss-crossing the River Thames, Lambourn and Kennet (locks galore!) along the way to Goring, Streatley and Hungerford before arriving at our final destination for a riverside lunch alongside Kintbury lock.

For those who want to join us for lunch we will have our own, reserved area for dining that looks out on to the river, with further seating in the garden if the sun is out. NOTE: I will need to know numbers in advance for lunch to help the pub cater for us; please email me on raycampbell ‘at’ sky.com with a “yes to lunch” message (I will assume it’s lunch for one unless you tell me otherwise). Nearer the time I will forward a menu for your choice, which I will pre-order on your behalf.

Your ride leader Ray Campbell - C&F Road Captain
