The First cycling trip of 2019. Just a one day cycling trip to test out my new Ammaco HTF hybrid bike, to see how it handles.
So where to ??
Starting from home and hopefully arriving at the woods just below Ivinghoe Beacon. Then to have a little look around and take in some of the views of the woods and countryside.

Let the journey begin
Starting from the Sundon Park area in Luton, Bedfordshire. About fours miles of cycling through the busy village of Houton Regis then to the outskirts of Dunstable. This was to be the first resting place at the base of the Dunstable downs.
After a quick cold drink and a few Haribo sweats it was time to press onto the final destination of visiting the woods below ivinghoe beacon.
While cycling along some lovely roads it was a bit too traffic heavy for my liking. So a plan was needed too take a different route back.
So I finally arrived at the woods, soaking in sweat and needing caffeine.Planning Error
After arriving i quickly realised that no bikes were allowed to cycle in the woods.
So plan B was needed to rest. I found a nice spot at the base of the woods entrance to be able to put the water on to boil for a well earned coffee.
Now to plan for a more safer cycling route back to home.
