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.
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 ???
