Wednesday 24th June 2015. My ride to Wendover Woods Cafe in the park. I'm accompanied by John Hare and Iain MacDonald. It's basically a long thin ride as opposed to a circular one; borrowed from John Hare. (Always a good idea to take the author with you in case the GPS breaks down).
Up through the Chalfonts we go, with refreshments at Master Chef, Amersham. To show how clever I am, I throw in a few extra back streets after our stop. John is greatly impressed by my efforts and vows to remember this diversion. My next diversion is not so impressive. Starting at Hyde Heath, we pass a farm track with no less than three locked gates on it's three quarter mile length. Back on tarmac, John has had enough of my off-piste activities and heads for Gt Missenden.
Iain and I continue past Ballinger's Bottom, which is next to Herbert's Hole (I'm not making this up). Along Erriwig Lane, Scottish cries of "Earwig-go-again," are uttered. At the cafe-in-the-woods, both of us order a ploughman's lunch. It is really a humungous salad with accompanying "doorsteps". Just about able to move after such a repast, we retrace our steps back to the main road. Until we get there, my GPS is recording a track totally inconsistent with our position. Dunno whether it's the trees or death rays coming from nearby RAF Halton, but it does thankfully get it's act together for the homeward run.
Stopping at Ozzy's at Little Chalfont , our return journey is pretty uneventful. Our way is blocked in Tilehouse Lane, by a lost AA wagon. The driver asks the way to Denham Golf Course. Iain directs him to Rectory Lane. The guy didn't seem to have a Sat-Nav, which is puzzling in this day and age.
