You don’t need to have professional touring kayak to spend a few exciting hours on the water. Kayak trip to Baits Bite Lock and back takes around 2-3 hours. It’s amazing to start 1 hour before the sunset. Especially, when you expect full moon and clear sky!
I started the trip from Midsummer Common. First I paddled down the river along Riverside street leaving behind Cambridge Museum of Technology and Logan’s Meadow LNR.
I kayaked under the Green Dragon Bridge and moved along the Stourbridge Common leaving the city. After next bridge (railway and foot/cycle bridges), Ditton Meadows appeared on the right. It is a good place for a break or a picnic on your way back.
Next, after leaving Ditton Meadows, I was kayaking along Fen Ditton grounds and picturesque houses located by the river. There is a pub/restaurant on the right river bank there as well. From there I had another 2km to get to the Baits Bite Lock. When I got there it was already dark. I kayaked back under the clear sky and moon shining bright…
