A couple of LEJOG friends Ellen and Steve joined me yesterday for a 35 mile ride cross country through the Chilterns. We cycled via Wendover to Longwick on fairly busy and decent roads, then up to Bledlow Ridge and beyond on very minor roads. My handlebar bag came in useful for coffee and penquins at the top of the hill.
Then it was on to Speen up another even steeper hill before going down to cross the Wendover-Amersham road then up a gravelly dirt track of a road up to the Old Swan at Swan's Bottom pictured. There were lots of cyclists on the roads, mainly mountain bikers at some sort of event. We had a hearty lunch before the final 5 miles back to Tring.
