Ride to Stowe Gardens – Saturday 22nd June

Peter Bayles is leading this ride and writes:

Start time:  9.30 a.m.
Meeting point:  Hunsbury Hill Library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury, NN4 0RZ
Distance:  Brisk 45 mls, Moderate 40 mls
Refreshment stop:  The Nevillery Café at Stowe, 26 mls or 21 mls
Average Pace:   Brisk ~14mph, Moderate ~12mph
Time Expected Back:  Around 2.00pm

The ride this Saturday will be from East Hunsbury to Stowe Gardens, with a refreshment stop at the Nevillery Café there.
Either the Brisk or the Moderate will be self led.  A number of our regular riders appear to be otherwise engaged, either enjoying warmer climes, a wedding (Phil) or feigning pain (Brian), and therefore we will decide the format on the day when we know who’s joining and the availability of Garmins. The good news is that the weather is looking very pleasant, with warmth and sunshine, and no rain forecast for a change.

We will leave East Hunsbury, riding past Milton Malsor, turning right down Gayton Road, past Gayton Marina, and on to Tiffield.  Almost through Tiffield, we hang a right and ride through Caldecot and on to the A5.  Crossing the A5 a few hundred metres North (there is a path along side the busy road), we will ride West through Duncote, Greens Norton, Bradden, Slapton towards Wappenham.
Before Wappenham, the Moderate route turns left to Syresham and then on to Biddlesden, following Welsh Lane into Stowe Gardens to our refreshment stop at the National Trust cafe there.
The Brisk route rides through Wappenham, continuing to Helmdon, through Crowfield, and meets the Moderate route at Syresham.
The return route will be through Chackmore and Whittlebury, crossing the A5 again at Heathencote before riding through Blisworth and back through Milton Malsor.
As always, any new riders would be very welcome.
