Whitwell Hertfordshire

Tuesday 16th February

Today we did a ride to St Pauls Walden and Whitwell.  Seven of us left Wetherspoons headed for St Pauls Walden. Frank C, Paul, Sheila, Mia, Peter and I, lead by Geoff as usual. We headed off via Willian, Great Wymondley, Redcoats, Little Almshoe then on the B656 to the Whitwell turn off and up the hill to our destination for lunch, the Strathmore Arms. The usual basic, but good lunch was had before heading back by a bit longer route. We came via Witwell, the Lillie bottom road to Hollybush hill, Great Offley, Ley Green, Preston, down to Little Almshoe where we picked up the usual route back. The weather was cold, but a glorious sunny day. The was a light southeasterly wind which gave us a lovely push along the Lillie bottom road. 30.5 miles was the distance covered.
