quest for pre-work swim at Rivermill (Great Ouse)

Join me on a quest for a pre-work swim at Rivermill, Great Ouse. I am an opportunistic swim addict who is always ready for action as I permanently have swim kit in my car. I take in Rivermill Marina, Eaton Socon Lock Number 8, Eaton Socon weir, Pocket Park, Eynesbury Manor Lifting Bridge and Willow Bridge.

Just a 5 minute drive from the A1 at Wyboston/St Neots, this spot would be great with less flow, but is an ideal place to break up your journey and stretch your legs or have a picnic.

I’m using an xclear hydrophobic protector on my gopro to repel water droplets – it was raining during filming on this occasion. Get yours here:

Outdoor swimming is a fantastic activity to get involved in, but sometimes just getting started can be challenging – what to wear, where to go, who to do it with are all questions that my playlist “Get Involved with Outdoor Swimming” addresses

The Outdoor Swimming community is extremely diverse and welcoming and there are new friends waiting to meet you. Hope to see you in the water sometime soon.
