About 25 miles, gentle to moderate pace, mostly on quiet roads, some hills.
Stops at tea rooms – perhaps for late breakfast, certainly for lunch.
Return around 15:30, or later depending on stops.
Hopefully, good views across London (weather permitting), and possibly including spectacular field of red poppies.
