Haddenham Guides May 2013

Around 18 Guides took part in what has become an annual two-week cycling event.

The week before our ride, Instructors from Haddenham Cycle Training came into the Guides meeting and helped them to check and adjust all their bikes.

On the second week, we cycled in two 'snakes' from Haddenham to the Phoenix Trail via Kingsey and Towersey. The girls then enjoyed some free time cycling up and down the Phoenix Trail in small groups, before having a hot dog and a drink and then cycling back.

They all did really well and we cycled about 10 miles in total.
