7 Mar: Evening ride to Newton

Nigel writes: Tonight's evening ride took place on a cold, clear night, with a full moon and several planets glowing brightly above. There were six of us: Gareth, Rob, Klaas, Paul and newcomer Phil.

Our route was very similar to the one we took last month: south via the Shelfords, Whittlesford and Duxford to Ickleton, then over Coploe Hill, west along the lovely quiet Royston Lane to Chrishall Grange and then north via Fowlmere and Newton, where we stopped for a drink and brown soup at the Queen's Head before returning to Cambridge.
