Walk Report

The "Tring Ring", Saturday 24th June 2017
7 walkers, 21 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
Start 09.00 Finish 17.23; 3 stiles; 900 feet of ascent.
A cooler day after the recent heatwave gave us ideal walking conditions. The morning section followed the Ridgeway / Icknield Way with some glorious views over Tring park and beyond Tring to the northern Chilterns. We passed a few colourful signs warning that HS2 will destroy the idyllic beauty of this area. Lunch in Wendover provided a variety of options including a very good local coffee shop Rumsey's. The longer afternoon section contained several loops in the woods above Wendover leading to a refreshing drink/ice cream stop in the woods just beyond the "Gruffalo". Gradually descending from the hills with a spectacular view to Ivinghoe Beacon and then a final section beside quiet reflective waterways and reservoirs back to Tring station. A well-behaved group with no yo-yo in sight.
