Father and son's 'royal ride' finishes at Windsor Castle

Cycling enthusiasts enjoyed a royal ride between two famous palaces on Sunday.

The Palace to Palace ride saw 3,000 participants cycle the 49 miles from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle, raising money for the young people's charity The Prince's Trust.

It was the event's seventh year.

Among the cyclists were Tony Shoard, who owns the TSG garage in Chalvey, and his son Jack, 16, who goes to Windsor Boys School. They live in Hemwood Road, Windsor.

Jack's uncle Michael Pearse, of Mundesley Spur, Slough, also took part. Together the intrepid trio raised £500 for the charity.

They started in St James’s Park, pedalling through Fulham and across Putney Bridge towards Richmond Park, through Bushey Park to Virginia Water and Egham.

The 2012 event sold out, so anyone interested in next year should register their interest by email to
