Ride to Geddington – Sunday 5th May

James Holden is leading this ride and writes:
Start time:  9.30 a.m.
Meeting point:  Moulton Co-op, Stocks Hill, Moulton, NN3 7TB
Distance:  50 miles
Refreshment stop:  Dovecot Farm
Pace:  Steady (13mph)

Starting from Moulton, Sunday’s steady takes a rather circuitous route to Dovecote Farm and Buttery at Geddington. Heading out via Walgrave and Old we climb the hill at Harrington, skirt Desborough and proceed towards Pipewell.

Once we’ve crossed Uppingham Road it’s on to Great Oakley and, finally, Geddington and coffee. The Buttery serves a tasty range of cakes, cream teas and other such delights. It’s also available for wedding receptions so if you are thinking of signing your happiness away then here’s an opportunity to scout a possible location.

On an unrelated note, the farm shop sells a variety of free range pork products as well as their own branded jams and preserves.

Our return journey brings us back via Rushton, Rothwell and Loddington. After Great Cransley and Boughton we wind our way out towards Pytchley. It’s then full steam ahead to Little Harrowden, Sywell, Overstone and, at last, Moulton.

The route is neither arduous or hilly, whilst the forecast is for sunny spells and a gentle breeze. Unlike certain other rider leaders my Garmin holds a full charge so no one need worry about missing turns or ending up in the outer reaches of Corby. Additional entertainment lies in coming along to see if I can lead a ride in 2019 that doesn’t end up in an extended hospital visit 🙂

See you there.
