Sunday 27th May

One change of plan was, because I was working up in Cambridge, I thought I'd ride up on the Sunday before the festival and head north directly from there.

The other thing to mention is the weather, we'd had a very dry winter and, as is all too typical here, the powers that be were screaming drought and plotting hosepipe bans all of which had the usual effect, we ended up with one of the wettest summers on record. That being said it was a gorgeous weekend and I set off on the 70ish mile journey,

though what hadn't occurred to me was I'd finish the journey heading into the late evening sun which wasn't much fun!

That aside though a jolly nice start to the trip.
