Virginia Water

It was a little too hot for a long ride today, but I managed to get started fairly early and I covered 34 miles by lunchtime: thereby avoiding the worst of the heat.

It turned to be quite a good route.

I went out to Virginia Water, crossed Windsor Great Park, then followed the Round Berkshire Cycle Route through Old Windsor, Datchett and Eton. I returned along the river to Maidenhead.

The general outline of the Round Berkshire route is becoming more clear from the map, but it is often difficult to follow the signs at a detailed level. Also, I had expected to do a bit better today on average speed than things turned out. But I can always blame the heat for that.
