I’ve been exploring routes that take me towards Olney and beyond. This morning it was my longest 23.2 miles; Newport Pagnell, Lathbury, Gayhurst, Stoke Goldington, Ravenstone, Weston Underwood, Olney, Cold Brayfield, Turvey, Newton Blossomville, Astwood, Boure End, Campus. I did it in about 1 hr 40 mins which is 13.7 mph average. I managed the 11 miles to Emberton via astwood and Newton Blossomville in 45 mins the other day making an average of 14.66 mph. The scenery was fantastic and i saw many beef cattle and sheep grazing in parkland and fields. I was staggered by the thatched cottage beauty of many of the villages around Olney.
