8 October 2020 - Hampton Court Club ride for Victorian and modern machines
For older machines there is a gentle ride past Hampton Court, along the Thames towpath to Kingston, through Bushy Park for refreshments at Hampton Hill before returning to Hampton Court past the Diana Fountain. More modern machines will be guided on a leisurely ride through the Surrey countryside, achieving a few more miles than the older machines.
Following the rides there will be a Club luncheon in a local restaurant.
