I’ve cycling into these woods many times before… but never via this route… So not 100% sure where, I am!!! Lucky I did find my way out in the end!

Apr 232018

It’s always fun Fun cycling down public bridleways, since you are never 100% sure where you will end up! Which I found out today, ended up in some woods, that I’ve been into many miles before, but never from direction.

So once in the woods, I was no idea where I was… But lucky I have full OS maps downloaded to my phone, so when with out a mobile network, I can still see where I am…

You can check out the route, I took over at www.strava.com/activities/1527074330
