Expedition[edit]

Being busy during the day but having a free evening, I left the house at 20:28 and cycled up to Histon.

The first approach to the hashpoint I tried -- a path between houses -- initially seemed promising, but soon headed off in the wrong direction, and in the direction I wished to go, turned into an impenetrable thicket.

I returned to the road and tried another approach further down. This was a track which passed behind some houses and would have taken me to the paddock I wanted, but there was a gate across with a sign saying it was a private track. Besides, from here I could see that there were horses in the paddock, so I couldn't have reached the point anyway.

I returned to the road and cycled home again, arriving back at 21:38, having ridden or walked a total of 15.6 km. I forgot to record the distance of my closest approach to the hashpoint.
