Looking forward to some sun and getting the road miles in. There is a nice run to Old Windsor with a long, steep hill climb around Winsor Park. Every time, so far, I have had to get off and push; it is one hard pedal! On the way back, you can pop into Windsor Farm Shop or to give it its full title, The Royal Farms Windsor Farm Shop. A bit of a mouthful. The shop is the idea of the Duke of Edinburgh. they do a nice Earl Grey tea and you can grab some goodies for an impromptu picnic on the way home. On the left of the picture is my bike, under the sunshade and to the right are some cyclists having a break. As I turned in, some 20 other pedlars were departing, suitably refreshed. The tea shop must do a roaring business in the summer.

The Royal Farms Windsor Farm Shop: good thing that it is there so you can get at least a drink.

That looks a nice spot, but if you find some sun today you are in a better spot than me. Good luck.

There is a coffee shop right on a Colorado Springs bike path. It always has a few bikes there when I ride by.

There is no such thing as a "nice" Earl Grey tea, it is the worst thing that I have ever tasted. By the way, if you are looking for Sun then you are looking ion the wrong country.

Oh no, Earl Grey is excellent, but I do mix tea types. Down here in the south east it ain't so bad for sun, sometimes!

@Ronrybs Well it will be a little sunnier down there than it is up here in the Arctic North.

Sounds like a tough ride uphill, but what a great place to stop and refresh.
