Sunday ride to Waterperry and Towersey

Sunday, 15 December 2013 - 9:30am

Ride report

The Garmin Connect link is somewhat meandering at the start, as some of us got lost experimenting with a different route to Waterperry Gardens. The moral of this story is don’t trust the map in Garmin Connect when planning a route (in our case it shamelessly directed us along a clearly marked footpath). Always check with a “proper” map! The drizzle failed to dampen our enthusiasm, with 5 of us completing the full day’s ride in addition to the 5 who rode to coffee and back home.
