Waltham transmitting station cycle

Always love cycling up close to the Waltham transmitting station. Since it’s 315 metres tall and can see it from miles and miles. Only really get an idea, of how tall it is, when standing very close to it!

New route via Market Overton

Funny that you can more just 4 miles west and you end up cycling in totally, different places! I now cycle in Rutland and Leicestershire, a lot more. Since Rutland, is not even half a mile down the road, then Leicestershire is just a, wee bit after that!

Check out the fun, but short route, I took over at www.strava.com/activities/1751856605.
