28 Apr: Afternoon ride to West Wratting

John writes: Six riders assembled at Brookside for the 2:00 p.m. start. Delighted to have a member (Jane) from CTC Bury St Edmunds whom we hope to see again. We joined the Busway cycle track under the Long Road bridge and went via Addenbrookes, the DNA path to Great Shelford, Sawston, Babraham and the farm track to Abington. After Linton we crossed the A1307 for the second time to Bartlow. Here we decided to turn left and take the direct route to West Wratting rather than a longer route via Shudy Camps and Cardinal's Green.

Instrumental to this decision was that afternoon-riders often get to the tea-stop after the day- riders have set off home which we suspected would happen again having met Jim at Abington. Moreover Tina had cycled from Royston to Cambridge to join us. Surprisingly we reached the tea-stop 20 minutes before the day-riders and tucked into an excellent tea.

After tea Tina decided to take a direct route to Cambridge and home whilst we were joined by Nigel and two others from the day-ride. Nigel’s report and accompanying photographs, which are much appreciated, covers the return leg.

I have finally got my head round the Garmin Vista which recorded a distance of 60.75k or 38 miles. John Ferguson
