July 1st 2011 Ride

  • 8.67 Miles
  • Biggleswade
  • Exactly 1 Hour
  • Average Speed: 8.58MPH

This starts off like most of my routes, following the same scenery then it diverts away. I found the ride relatively easy the only hard bit was cycling up towards the RSPB which is fairly steep, but is fun when coming back the same way. I think next I’m going to a totally different route such as head to the Chicksands bike park and back.
