New miles in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire

I drove out to the west of Cambridge to get a big ride in on some different roads. I used Strava's route planner and relied on their "popularity routing". As a consequence I was treated to some amazingly quiet roads and amazing scenery, only having trouble at one point where a bridge was closed (and had been for a while, evidently). The guided busway / bridleway was especially pleasant, and absolutely fine to ride on road tyres.
