|I followed the cycle path out through Stone, then down this quiet side road that leads to Cuddington. Later, I'll be going up those hills at the back - the first of two ridges I'll be climbing|
|Out of Cuddington, and down the hill towards Chearsley. I'll be turning right at the bottom of the hill, towards Ashendon.|
The hills at the back look a bit bigger now ...
|When not rushing along, one has time to enjoy the scenery - these were just growing in the verge.|
|Yep, I did the extra few yards up to the reservoir to "claim" the Cat 4, |
then back down again to the "proper" route.
Little diversions like this are ENTIRELY a result of the growth of cheap, portable, GPS receivers!
|A rather more civilised place to stop for a sip of water than roadside verge!|
This is at the top of the hill at Ashendon.
The side road visble leads up to the "Cat 4" reservoir.
|I acn see for miles and miles and miles - the view facing south from opposite the bench.|
|After Ashedon, it was down to Westcott, and then a short length of main road to the next turning, which leads to ...|
The railway museum is shown.
|Then on into Quainton "proper".|
Didn;t the old windmill used to have a white "cap"?
Or am I confusing it with another one?
|Lake and turbine shot in Berryfields.|
Actually, it's not a lake, it's just a bit of flooded waste ground, but the birds don't seem to mind :-)
51.5 km travelled, with 294m climbed, in a nice, leisurely 3hrs 15 minutes/
