    The route doesn't go on the A47? The roads you have picked are fine, I've ridden the first 21 miles loads of times (with the exception of the Sutton in the Elms road

    @Supersuperleeds, think you've missed my squarechasing counterproposal where I didn't realise that it touched the a47. We could avoid that bit anyway.

    Chris Doyle I’m just that somewhere in between....

    I’m sure I rode that section last month as part of the challenge and it was ok, if a little open and breezy. But I’m happy to go with whatever suits you guys best. :hugs:
