    I live in Hugglescote and I’m only a mile from Ellistown, so I can happily meet you there @Lilliburlero then we can tootle down Copt oak rd, turning off to go down beacon hill through Quorn and Mountsorrel and into Cossington that way.

    Looking forward to meeting you all at Bardney.
    Have you a map of the 49km route yet?

    I`ll be doing Overseal, Moira, Ashby, Packington, Heather, Ibstock, Ellistown. Should be 12 mile max. I`ll leave it to you to get me to Cossington because I have no sense of direction :sweat:

    I probably should add that the loop is by using Strava's heatmap and avoiding roads I've done a lot. Happy to take suggestions!

    Yeah there’s different routes you can take, I guess it depends on you and how you feel! That said, if you want to go from ashby to ravenstone and through Hugglescote up I can meet you there so we can cut out ellistown and hit the main drag quicker, I’ll leave it entirely up to you! I’ll pm you my number so you can get in touch should you need to. Cossington shouldn’t be too bad, fairly downhill/flattish too so should be steady.

    Surely we're going to round up the 49km to 50km :tongue: I could recommend a couple of little tweaks that may or may not add some more squares for me :rolleyes:
