22 Feb: Seniors' Tuesday Ride to Shepreth

Peter Rowell writes: George, Clive and I met at Trumpington Park and Ride site to start our ride to Shepreth.
We started along the path beside the main road, after we had passed the M11 roundabout there was a tailback of traffic as we approached Hauxton. We soon found out why, the path was being relaid and widened.

Eventually we were directed onto the road through the works area (the lane was closed and traffic lights were doing alternate directions of traffic on the other lane).

We then continued on the widened path which ended at Hauxton turn. We carried on to Harston and I found that railings at the other end of Harston, on the bend, had been run into and were overhanging the path (care needed at this point especially after dark). On to Foxton crossing then to Barrington where we stopped for coffee at the bus shelter. After coffee we continued to Shepreth, through the village crossing over the A10 towards Melbourn taking the first left to The Green Man, where we were joined by Vic Skelton and Mike Stapleton for a good lunch. After lunch George and Clive went home via Fowlmere and the Old Coach Road. Vic and I went back via the A10 (Path).
