Sun, cycling, beer, sandwich, Fenland = heaven

At last some sunshine coincides with a day off. Hallelujah! Out came the Guv'nor for spin out to QuyBottishamSwaffham BulbeckBurwell, 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.
