Below is ride brief for Saturday. I’ve not done a separate route for slower riders – mainly because there aren’t any shortcuts they can take to get to the café. I figure we’ll cycle as one group with someone just keeping with the steady bunch. Obviously if I’m the only one who turns up then this was won’t be an issue 🙂
Saturday’s ride sees us visiting a new coffee stop – The Canvas Café out at Great Oxendon. I’ve visited it a few times over the last couple months with ‘Conker’ Barringham and they’ve yet to bar us. There’s a wide range of food/drink and they’re very welcoming to cyclists – happily offering to top up water bottles and so on.
The route itself is perfect for what’s expected to be a typically warmish summer’s day. We leave from Moulton, cross the causeway at Pitsford and pedal on through Brixworth, Cottesbrooke, Haselbech until we reach Clipston where we divert off to the Harborough Road and then coffee. The journey back isn’t especially demanding, either – Harrington, Old and Walgrave, undulating rather than hilly – so it should all be very pleasant and relaxing.
The route works out at around 34/35 miles. The forecast is good and we’ll be back early afternoon.
See you Sat.
