Distance - 8.82 miles
Ascent - 80 metres
After a few false starts I decided to try and get the full loop in. On a nice day at the weekend I feared the worst as far as crowds go. It turns out I was justified! The first car park was full of bikers, with BBQ's etc (it's about the size of 3-4 football pitches, a big car park). The second was taken over by the Riding for the Disabled. And the third? Nearly empty, phew! Luckily Grafham has more parking than most town centres!
|Almost like the Seaside|
Apart from a 10 minute rest I pretty much powered round the lake. I was in work in the evening so had to get round and get home. It's pretty flat and hardly taxing but at nearly 9 miles it's a good leg stretch.
I think I'll leave it till autumn before I come back again! Unless I need a flat training run that is!
