Loads of country pubs to stop at. Some iffy road surfaces and you'll be held up by some horses at least once but very few cars for most of it.
Where about's are u then?Debian said:+1
This is my local area and I regularly do parts of that, usually combined with off-road bits - there are so many really nice bridleways and bits of woodland.
I live in Worcester and often choose to ride in that direction. Sundays usually and I do mainly XC rides on the many bridleways in the area. Saturdays is out of the question for me as I have cricket on summer Saturdays.AlanW said:Where about's are u then?
We regularly ride these lanes as well. In fact every Saturday starting from The Bramley Cottage in Elcocks Brock, Redditch at 9 am.
Down Flying Horse Lane, Bradley Green, Priest Bridge, Earls Common, Dormston, Kington, Bishampton, Throckmorton, Tilesford, then back towards Upton Snodsbury, Grafton Flyford and retrace back to Stock Green, Lower Bentley and home.
45 miles near enough and anyone is more than welcome to join us.
We normally have about 8 in the group but it can swell to over a dozen. I would class the pace as brisk, but not fast, well maybe in places.
Why don't you do it tomorrow K.O. 05:00 and report back to the 'advisors'?Norry1 said:Thanks for the replies guys.
Hont, I like the look of that route - may well have a bash. Looks like 18 July now.
