Little Bytham – Thorney – Whittlesey cycle

Had great fun cycling from Little Bytham, to Thorney, Whittlesey, Peterborough  then back home to Little Bytham. Around 30 miles of this route covered roads I had never cycled on before. I had driven on most of them before, but that’s not the same. Also had my first real look around Whittlesey. Which is where most of the dog track staff come from. I also found 11 more geocaches bring my total to 103. I could have found many, many more during the cycle. But I run of out day light. Did not get home till gone 10:30pm the way it was.

So now on with some of the statistics from the cycle.

  • Distance: 62.04 miles.
  • Time: 4:38:30 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 13.4 mph.
  • Max Speed: 24.8 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 243 meters.
  • Elevation Loss: 242 meters
  • Min Elevation: -7 meters.
  • Max Elevation: 65 meters.

Here is a nice map of the full cycle.

After the cycle I went for a quick drink with Alex, Chris and Mark at the Willoughby Arms. When I say a drink, I mean a Pepsi. So over all it was a great day. Till my PC monitor died on me. But that’s story for another day.
