Unusual route home..

Yesterday evening I didn't leave work til after 7. I didn't have any plans for the evening, and the weather was lovely, so I thought I'd take a bit of a detour on the way home. At first I thought maybe just along the river to Baits Bite lock and back through Milton and over the cycle bridge. It didn't work out quite like that though. 15.5 miles in total, in 1 hour 25 mins, with a 10 minute break in Cottenham for an icecream and a can of pop.

I spent my lunchbreak playing with the Google maps API to produce a rather shonky map:

  • Post-ride Mike came over we ate chips and watched a bad film version of Jane Eyre
  • Train tickets are booked for my mum's 50th birthday week away
