Monday becomes ‘Twosday’….

Monday becomes ‘Twosday’…

Good to go off-road….and the track around Grafham Water is incomparable…forgetting, of course, the swarms of mosquitos by the water side. Being a Bank Holiday Monday, there were myriad bikers out enjoying this late spring holiday: from the kitted-out, camel-backed enthusiasts to the more senior rider with electric-assist machines, from the carefree ‘sit-up-and-beg’ riders to families with trailer bikes and child carriers….they were all there, and they all had smiles on there faces, except when they were struggling up one of the many little hills.

We passed a couple who had stopped to rest, and she looked at us on the tandem and the expression on her face seemed to say: “I’d like one of those, then he could do all the work….”.

We can access the track from a bridleway just 5km from our home, so no need to load the tandem into the car, and the round trip puts 25km onto the clock….so worth getting kitted up for it. And with a couple of cafés on the circuit, there’s no need to go off-piste in search of refreshments, and with Grafham Cycling also located on the route, any mechanical issues can be resolved during the ride.

Back on the trails

The old Raleigh is rapidly becoming a hack for scooting along trails in the local area.  And we have some great trails, the most popular being around Grafham Water, a favourite amongst occasional and weekend riders.2013-04-23 10.35.24

But radiating from this 9 mile circuit is a raft of less used trails that take you deep into the countryside.  This morning the sun was bright, there was a gentle breeze from the south and, for once, it was warm enough for uncovering the legs. It can only get better!
