Bike ride to Oundle

Saturday 11 October, early afternoon.  With Harry. About 25 miles return trip. Dry, sunny spells. 

We cycled to  Deene, then almost to Bulwick - had to cross A43 to get there. Just before Bulwick we turned right and uphill, the  along the road to Southwick. The World Conker championship is held there on Sunday 12 October this year.
We went once years ago when it was in Ashton. 

Then it was uphill from Southwick to the water tower, then down the other side to Glapthorn and finally Oundle. 

The farmers' market was just packing up - we wouldn't have bought anything since we were on the bikes. We had lunch in the café nearby, then made out way home the same way.
Southwick church with a lively sky behind. 
When we got home it began to rain and there were several claps of thunder. Excellent timing!
