As always the forecast is for warm, dry and wind free weather, (I’m shocked you feel the need to look that up) for our 60 mile trip to the garden centre at Wistow in Leicestershire where coffee and cake and much more substantial fare await the hungry cyclist.

It’s a reasonably challenging route with the odd sharp climb and sharper descent but it only totals out at around 3,200 ft. of climb – so within range. It’s a pretty rural route, but, as always, the price for that is the odd section on busy roads.

From Moulton we head to Pitsford and then, on one of those busy sections, up to Brixworth from where we set off to Spratton, Teeton, Guilsborough and Cold Ashby before heading east to Naseby and then north to Sibbertoft.

Then it’s Theddingworth, Laughton, Smeeton Westerby, (you can hear we’re in Leicestershire now) and Kibworth Beauchamp before arriving at the Garden Centre. There’s quite a range of shops as well as the Garden Centre so if you fancy, say, a new wardrobe, it might be advisable to bring a trailer.

Fully loaded up now we hit the slightly shorter route home – Fleckney, Saddington, Gumley, Lubenham, Marston Trussel and Clipston flash by before we reach the more familiar surroundings of Naseby, Cottesbrooke and Brixworth and then Holcot and the last stretch to Moulton.

A lovely Autumnal rural ride awaits and I look forward to your company.

I shall be navigating by means of the new-fangled Garmin thingumybob and heartily recommend that you download the file from our “Rides Calendar” for your own peace of mind – and indeed mine!
