Ride to Barby – Saturday 11th May

James Holden is leading this ride and writes:

Start time:  9.30 a.m.
Meeting point:  Brampton Valley Way, Welford Crossing, NN6 8AA
Distance:  38 miles / 31 miles
Refreshment stop:  The Willows Café, Barby
Pace:  Brisk/Moderate
This Saturday’s brisk ride comes in at around 38 miles. Leaving from Brampton Valley Way, we’ll climb across the Althorp estate and wind our way on towards Whilton Lock. Once across the A5 we’ll we head up Station Road and after a few more undulating miles, we’ll stop for coffee at The Willows Café (located at Barby Nurseries – 17 miles).

Suitably refreshed, we’ll wind our way back via Clifton Dunsmore, Yelvertoft, West Haddon, Guilsborough and Holdenby. A shorter option (totalling 31 miles) is also on offer, which follows the same route out but returns home in a more direct fashion through Watford, Long Buckby, East Haddon, etc.

Neither ride is particularly demanding and there are ample points along the route(s) where people can stop for a breather/refreshments should they feel the need to do so.

See you Saturday – 9.30 sharp.
