Like a good girlfriend, I was up at 5am to make Geoff coffee and see him off on his 80 mile COW (Cambridge to Oxford ) Walk.
He left at 6am in the rain and the first day proved to be a challenge, not only did it rain but it poured making for very wet walking conditions.
This resulted in a drive out to Wimpole hall for me, to deliver a few extra pairs of clean dry socks 🙂
Geoff then spent the first night, after walking 31 miles,in his tent which thankfully survived the storms and rain.
He is now more than half way and I am glad to report that he’s been having great weather.
So far TheCow has taken him through Biggleswade, The Flit Valley, Clopton, Flitwick , Woburn and Great Brickhill.
To his delight it included the whole of Flitwick Moor too.
So its proving to be a very scenic walk and one he is hoping many people will want to do.
As he plans to do a guide book for this walk.
Which is great news for me, as he will have to walk it a few more times, so I may just get a chance to go with him next time 🙂
After looking at these photos who would not want to do it ???
More photos can be seen here.

Glad you explained wht the COW is! I cpuldn’t do the walk but that is beautiful scenery.
Congratulations Geoff, what a great accomplishment. I would like to stretch this walk to a week to fully appreciate the countryside. And I think it is a great idea for you to publish the walk. I know there is a programme on Radio 4 that follows people on their walks, maybe we should contact them.
Cherrypie ….yes it looks and sounds fab sorry not to be walking it with Geoff but someone has to work 🙂
Geoff …. you always have my support in all you do 🙂
good write up and thanks for all your support 🙂
should make it to Oxford tomorrow, looking forward to walking through Brill . It will be difficult as I’m now off my planned route so no GPS trail to follow 🙁
It looks lovely Sally 🙂
