Start time: 9.30 a.m.
Meeting point: Brampton Valley Way, Welford Crossing, NN6 8AA
Distance: 25 miles off road circuit of Rutland Water
Refreshment stop: Various coffee stops
Members wishing to attend this ride/circuit of Rutland Water will need access to bike carrying transport to/from Rutland Water, a journey which takes about 50mins.
I’m proposing to meet at the car park opposite the Windhover/BVW at 9.30am then drive in convoy through to Uppingham and the start point at Manton where there is limited free parking (to avoid the £6 fees at Normanton!)
The off road ride surface is a mixture of tarmac, roughish gravel and cobbles so either an MTB or Gravel bike is required, definitely not a road bike.
It would be useful to know who intends to do this ride.
I can offer bike rack space for one or two more.
I’m on 07867388592
