In the Countryside (22/08/11) Epic4
Note to self: this is cycle ride #25...#24 was a 35 mile charity ride but no pictures from that were uploaded here!
It’s still August but this was my last major bike ride of the 2011 season due to having no more free time. Objective was to find a place called “Sanctuary Bridge”. Took 4.5hrs and the eventual destination was disappointing. The ride was good overall except for an early crash, my first in a long long while. Went too fast down a hill which had a ford (stream) at the bottom where I slid off but escaped with only cuts and bruises. The last few miles were also very punishing.
Total length 35 miles. Here’s the list of villages: Knodishall, Benhall, Farnham, Stratford, Great Glemham, Parham, Kettleburgh, Letheringham, Easton, Wickham Market, Campsea Ashe, Tunstall, Snape and Friston.
Could be my last ever major bike ride with the long trusted Halfords bike as now it’s damaged and I would like to invest in a road bike next year, which I hope to start in March 2012.
