At last some sunshine coincides with a day off. Hallelujah! Out came the Guv'nor
for spin out to Quy
, Swaffham Bulbeck
, finally stopping at Wicken Fen
and its wonderful café where I had a home-made sandwich and a bottle of refreshing beer (City of Cambridge Brewery's excellent Boathouse Bitter
). As usual I came back to Cambridge via the Lodes Way
. Since my last spin along this route there has appeared a new "Portrait Bench" put up by Sustrans
. I couldn't resist having my portrait taken on it - I presume that's why they call it a Portrait Bench? (It seems the answer is "Yes"
). Anyway, a splendid ride.
