Spring bike ride: Newstead Abbey

Loving the first signs of spring, and warm weather.

We started this morning with Tom taking part in his first 2k junior parkrun.


We met a friend up the park for a scooter around before lunch.


With the weather dry and a nice 13oC we decided to set off after lunch for a bike ride to Newstead Abbey.


We cycle via Linby and what is known locally as the yellow brick road, along the cycle route 6. We take the road into Newstead Abbey and enjoy cycling into the Abbey grounds.


We enjoy stopping for ice cream, tea (and cakes!).

We head back along the road and this time continue Newstead Village, and homeward bound along the Hucknall Bypass.

Ending the ride with a tired cuppa tea.
