    Yep, purely for squares.....normally by doing things like going the other way between 2 villages.

    Hmm.....strangely that's the way Strava plotted it.....I only clicked on Elmesthorpe and Stapleton!!

    Edit: looks like there's a cycle path along there.

    Not sure you can get down the road at Sutton Elms We'd be better going down Huncote Road into Stoney Stanton and along the B581. (or up Coventry Road though this is a busy road but not very long)

    The rest of the route is fine, the Earl Shilton bit is a nice bit of road.

    Echo that. It’s usually a superb area for cycling so I’m particularly looking forward to riding the southern bit.

    There is good cycle path along the Earl Shiltonr by pas be aware of dog walkers.

    Is that the A47? If so I’ve ridden around there and I’m sure there are cycle paths. A look on Google street appears to confirm it.
