Saddle sore, tired, wet and muddy – but we made it!!

Our second bike camp to in Windsor Great Park has been a challenging and fun experience for all those hardy enough to cycle the 40+ mile return trip and camp as a patrol in some quite challenging conditions over the weekend!!

We even managed a trip to the village shop in Windsor Great Park on Saturday to get the usual scout sustenance of sugary drinks and sweets!!

All those who made the trip, one or both ways should feel exceptionally proud – in addition to the cycle ride they have set up camp, collected and chopped wood, cooked three meals on open open fires, completed some bike slalom and other skills and then packed down camp in the rain. They should all challenge their friends to achieve the same!!

Well done all!! We still have to find time one weekend to do the remainder of the badge – but the “Lion’s Share” has been done!!

Hands up if you want to do it again in another two years? More photos on Flickr.
