The Night Riders; Women V Cancer 2016.

We went out on Saturday night to get a Chinese takeaway - we'd been promising it to ourselves all week but it never happened.

On the way, we saw lots of direction arrows on the sign posts - was it a bike race?

Then in the evening we realised it was a night ride!

And as the riders kept on coming we went out to cheer them on and wish them good luck.

I was waving my clockwork torch and Robyn had an LED disco light.

There were over 3 thousand riders, all women, raising money for the three major womens cancer charities. This was Women V Cancer 2016 and if you want to join next years ride you need to register now; they are on the web here;

They were cycling over 100 Kilometres and came in all shapes and sizes; with Christmas lights and angels costumes, silly pink wigs and Tutus, flowers and racing lycra .

They just kept on coming;

They started off from Windsor racecourse and we were just a hundred yards from the 10 kilometre mark. They were heading off to central London to ride round all the sights, then back to Windsor by a different route.

We ended up standing at the side of the road wishing them good luck for the best part of an hour and a half.

And Robyn took this rather fetching picture of me;
