Peter Bayles and Brian Tunbridge are leading these two rides:
Start time: 9.30 a.m.
Meeting point: Overslade Close, Near the Library, East Hunsbury, NN4 0RZ
Distance: 43 mls (Brisk) or 36 mls (Moderate)
Refreshment stop: Woodford Halse Equestrian Centre at 26mls (Brisk) and 18mls (Moderate)
Pace: Brisk or Moderate
Time Expected Back: 1.30pm
At the moment, the weather looks to be frost free and most likely dry, which is good news ……… if it stays like that, of course.
The two routes take us West of Northampton again, starting at East Hunsbury and crossing the A5 at Pattishall.
We then follow Banbury Lane past Caswell and on to Preston Capes, where the Brisk group will continue towards Priors Marston, turning south and taking in Byfield, West Farndon and to our café stop at the Equestrian Centre at around 26 miles.
The Moderate group take a short cut at Preston Capes, riding directly to Woodford Halse at around 18 miles. They are expected to save seats for the Brisk group, but not expected to eat all the cake!
The ride homewards takes us past Eydon and Canons Ashby. Following Northampton Road we skirt Bugbrooke and return to our starting point via Gayton.
We look forward to welcoming all riders, and especially any new riders who may wish to join the ride.
