Wimpole Hall

Wimpole Hall 45mi. 20th September 2015

This was a really enjoyable ride, with perfect weather, quiet roads and a great Battle of Britain celebration at Wimpole Hall.

We took the usual way out to Ashwell via Baldock and Bygrave. From Ashwell, Steeple Mordern, Littlington, Bassingbourn, Meldreth, Orwell to Wimpole.

Here we found a great party going on with many people in period gear, we kidnapped couple of them for our team photo.

After tea and cakes, we cycled through the grounds, avoiding cattle to get back to the road and on to Arrington, Croydon and over to East Hatley with views over remarkable big landscapes to the South. The road from here to Gamlingay quiet but with steady inclines proved quite taxing but with the turn through Potton we were on the way back down to Dunton, Edworth, Hinxworth. A hop across the busy A1 took us quickly to Stotfold and back to Letchworth.
