Norwich to Great Cambourne

It was cold, pretty wet, and the 20 mph head/cross wind was challenging reducing me to a crawl at times, but made it to my brother and sister-in-law’s near Cambridge in 7 hours, covering 78 miles.

Route details here:

16/03 – Norwich to Great Cambourne by jam_har at Garmin Connect – Details.

The route travelled had a disturbing lack of cafes or shops purveying pies/sausage rolls, which was a little disappointing, will have to plan better next time. The last 20 miles or so was mainly fuelled by haribos and a snickers bar.

Garmin Edge kept me going in the right direction, although it did send me off on a alternative route from the one I’d programmed in at one point, which was a little disturbing; I hadn’t had any intention of going through Elveden and had been trying to avoid the A11 – too much traffic and big lorries on a narrow road!

Legs held up okay but will be interesting to see how they feel tomorrow morning for the return leg. Time for a big feed now to re-energise.
