Out on Sunday with the V-CC, a few of us from the Oxford section rode out from Winkfield in Berkshire to meet up with others for a special ride through Windsor Great Park.
I rode the Rochester, seen here with some exalted company.....

And not just veteran age machines either.....

There were not one, not two, but six Dursley 'Pedersens' out with us, including a super rare ladies model. A great sight to see.....

Take a look at @tripple3 's great "Cabers Riding Classics" thread for further details!

Beautiful, traffic free roads through Her Majesty's backyard.....

Although there was some confusion as to where we were heading on occasion.....

A great day, around 30+ riders, 30+ miles.
Gorgeous.

Great pics @dnc1 ! The red wheeled bike and dark green frame bike are nuts! Looks like a fun ride.
Thanks, the red-wheeled bike is an English made 'boneshaker' from circa 1869. The dark green machine you referred to is either a rather lovely Triumph (conventional diamond frame) or one of the 6 Dursley Pedersen's (bonkers frame and 'hammock' seat) ranging from 1903 to 1908.
It certainly was a blast!

Great pics @dnc1! That "Bone Shaker" looks like a real ball buster.
I've never ridden one @Sven, but having seen riders who've recently dismounted from such machines after a 10 mile spin, I think your assumption is pretty accurate, lol.
Fantastic ride, @dnc1 !
It was nice of the Her Majesty, to allow the Riff Raff to ride some old bicycles around the yard for the day.
It looks like a great place to ride.
Riff Raff and ne'er do wells! Every one of them Sir!
Beautiful rolling terrain.

@tripple3 Nice pics of Edison! Blue stacks.

@dnc1 @Sven I showed my kids the pics from the Windsor Great Park ride. They got a kick out of them. They said they recognized the Boneshaker from a book they have on bikes. They pulled this out:

Great to see a real one, and not just a drawing in a book!!

Explored around the back of Kyrene tonight. Found some more tracks with cars.

Kids have a great memory don't they? Very cool.

Now for some rail history. That is a very old, Missouri Pacific Lines (MoPac) covered hopper. That Buzzsaw logo hasn't been used in about 40 years. MoPac merged with Union Pacific in the late 90s.

Nice eye Sven! It took me a second to find the washed out buzzsaw logo. Cool!
