27 Feb: Evening ride to Great Wilbraham

Nigel writes: There were only two of us on tonight's evening ride. I turned up at Brookside at 6.30pm to find no-one else there, so set off on my own along the river to Fen Ditton. It was very cold, which probably explains my lack of cycling companions, but there was virtually no wind and by the time I reached the far end of High Ditch Road I was fully warmed up. Here I stopped and waited a few minutes for Tony to join me.

Tony duly arrived and we set off for a relatively fast loop through Bottisham, Swaffham Bulbeck, Dullingham and Six Mile Bottom, arriving at The Carpenter's Arms in Great Wilbraham rather early at 8.15pm. We ordered drinks and food and settled down for a leisurely meal. Afterwards we set off in different directions: Tony went back towards Little Wilbraham and Quy whilst I returned to Cambridge via Fulbourn. On the way back I noticed that the full moon had put in an appearance behind me, rather indistinct between hazy cloud. I arrived back home at 9.50pm, having cycled 30 miles.
