We could have named this ride "The crossing of the motorways" How many times did we pass over or under a motorway? Answer at the end of the blog.
|Bridleway near Gerrards Cross|
After this delay we explored a bridleway short-cut between south of Chalfont St Peter and Gerrards Cross. It started out well along a proper road and across a field, then we had to get directions from a local resident and go along a very narrow overgrown section until we crossed the River Misbourne.
After lunch we went via Beaconsfield, Seer Green and the Chalfonts before heading to Sarratt Church for a tea stop, as we had noticed some signs in the morning about a flower festival to be held on 10th June. So for the second week running we had a church tea, this time accompanied by beautiful flower displays.
A short ride took us back to St Albans and we only covered about 63 miles - it seemed much further when you get south of the M40!
I counted nine motorway crossings during the day.
