Leisure Ride Upton Mill lakes.
As part of Summer of Cycling in Northampton the CTC section cycling group are leading a ride on cycle paths from Beckets Park alongside the River Nene to Upton Park Lakes and returning through Upton Park. There is a short stretch where the route is on a firm gravel Bridleway otherwise it is on tarmac. Main roads are crossed where there are pedestrian lights.
This is a flat ride; the only inclines are the bridges over the river and canal.!
10.30 am Start Midsummer Meadow Car Park next to Beckets Park (parking charge). NN1 5PE. along Bedford Road. Alternatively park free near (but not in) the Canoe Centre under the A45 flyover and use the cycle path along the Bedford road to Beckets Park, about ¾ mile.
The ride will take about 2 hours at a leisurely pace. Please bring a bottle of water.
You do not need to be a member of the CTC to take part in this ride.
If you would like more details of the ride please ring me on 01604 622073.
Hope to see your there.
Please pass this email onto your friend or relatives who may be interested in the ride.
