    posted on another thread, but I'm happy with this pic from today's ride..... was a nightmare as many of the roads were country lanes running between farms .... narrow and large deep potholes every few feet.... left home and the fog had lifted .... as soon as I started climbing the hills, I encountered very heavy fog, added to the fact that the roads were wet.

    I got halfway and the lane that I was travelling on, had a barrier and a notice saying that it is closed ... I had enough, so I set my garmin to take me home

    I spent the whole week planning this route on ridewithgps .... It was supposed to be 90km long, but I ended up riding 63km with 550 meters of climbing ...

    When I dragged the little man on all the whole course, and I thought it looked like a fast route on very quiet lanes with decent roads .... it's a very good course if you have a mountain bike or cyclo cross though

    Here's a photo showing some of the dense fog 3NkhWRp4vQN3-SphdT1Hy_zVveKIP3-RsDaMisMP3Vc-2048x1536.jpg

    I guess it fits some definitions of a wall as well as a window...

    IMG_1800.JPG And this, but the wall is more of a bridge. The path you see will likely become a part of the Oxford to Cambridge rail line so I wanted to ride it before it disappears

    I'm interested in that I'm concerned about the government plan is to hand it over completely to private companies, obviously after the tax payer has paid the private consultants to pretty much organise the plan.

    In my humble opinion , the traveler would get a better deal if it was kept as a public non profit making line with any surplus being re-invested back to keep it well maintained but that is probably a title for a thread in sc & p.

    The leg of the path we rode on that day is lovely but hard going due to it being mainly still ballast and I was on 35mm cycle cross tyres, I'd say an mtb would be slightly more suited.

    You really do get a feeling of remoteness for the most part, if you're local, try it.
