Ride – Someries Castle

11th September 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Six turned up for the ride on Sunday, with a seventh joining us at the lunch spot. It was a glorious sunny day and we had a very enjoyable ride along the old railway nearly into Luton, before climbing up to Someries Castle on a quiet country lane.

We stopped for a picnic lunch in the extensive castle grounds, then walked our bikes along what turned into quite a sticky, muddy footpath (churned up by the “Landrover Experience”) along the perimeter of Luton Airport, with jets roaring overhead. We rejoined the railway path after a quick bike-carry up some steps, and after a pause to remove large quantities of mud sandwiched between tyres and mudguards, we made our way back home. A stop in Wheathampstead for tea & cake before the last few miles home rounded the day off nicely.
