Summer finally coincided with a few hours of spare time and it was off to the River Ouse. I only had 2 hours to get a walk in and and get home to get ready for work (lovely 12 hour night shift). The walk to Roxton has become a bit of a go-to walk, I don't need a map, it's flat and the parking is easy and free. I really need a dog to gain the full advantage but it serves for now as a way of getting a few miles in.
|It's a bridlepath...no really!|
As per usual on a Bedfordshire walk I saw no one else on the path. It's a named route, the Ouse Valley Way and is publicised but still very quiet. It's nice for walking alone but sometimes the odd hello would be nice too!
The path is a nice easy walk along the river and is really nothing more than a stroll. I need to pick up the mileage, a lot and throw in some hills, or America will be an achefest supplemented by ibuprofen.
|Fit a horse through there...I dare you!|
