What you'll do
We'll set off from central Cambridge, cycling through a local park and then take a gentle ride through idyllic Cambridge meadows with cattle grazing. A relaxing ride along the river will give us time to check out the colorful barges, wildlife and river activities; Cambridge rowing teams in practice, kayaks, swans and ducks and also spot the many boat houses on the other side of the river. The route is mainly off road or on quiet back streets. After twenty minutes we'll arrive at a traditional Cambridgeshire village, with quaint cottages, several pubs and a church. We'll have a stroll around the village where I can point out anything of special interest and answer questions about village life. When open we can visit a tiny art gallery and have a look round a 12th century church. We'll then stop for a drink at one of the traditional English village pubs before heading back home.
I love cycling around Cambridge and cycle to work every day. It’s great to head out to the countryside at weekends, watch the boats on the river, cycle through meadows, appreciate wildlife and explore traditional Cambridgeshire villages, pubs and tea rooms. I care about preserving these special communities which are hundreds of years old, rather than making them into urban corridors. I grew up and later raised my family in a Cambridgeshire village and immersed myself in village life, running fetes and community groups and can answer questions about village life, its people and buildings.

Where you'll be
We'll cross a city park and cut through the Cambridgeshire countryside for a relaxing, slow cycle along tracks and paths giving us riverside views and pretty meadow scenery. We'll arrive at a traditional Fen village with thatched cottages and a choice of historic pubs where we'll sit and have a drink. We'll explore the village and I'll point out buildings and places of interest in this attractive 11th century village.
