We headed out via Barton Road, Haslingfield, and then onto a route we rarely take, through Harlton, the Eversdens, over the hill to Kingston, and up to Longstowe. A strong westerly wind made the exposed section west of Longstowe a bit of a slog, making us glad when we dropped down to Gamlingay. The air was fantastically clear, with, I think, the start of the Chiltern hills visible on the horizon beyond Biggleswade.
From Gamlingay we headed northwest on a roller-coaster of a road over Tetworth Hill (above) and Lily Hill (below) to Waresley, arriving at about 16:20. Which was just as well, since they stopped serving at 16:30. Something to note for future visits.
The return journey via Great Gransden, Caxton, Bourn and Toft, was much quicker, with a strong tailwind, and we were back in Cambridge by 18:00, having done just over 40 miles. Gareth Rees
