A overdue visit to the Ten Hands Café in Towcester is our ride this Saturday. It’s a very artisan café with teas like ‘Mountain Mint’ and ‘Grand Canyon’. There’s plenty of seating and an extensive menu. It’s the old Dolphin café located right on the main street in Towcester. Bike parking is available in the rear yard with a rear entrance to the café too.

It was a ride initially devised by Giles some time ago and not a route I’m particularly familiar with but between us I’m sure we’ll wing it! The routes are available on the rides calendar of course for those of you with Garmin’s etc. The moderate ride is a 32 miler towards Litchborough, Adstone and Bradden. Greens Norton and Towcester complete the journey out. The brisk at 39 has the extra loop around Little Everdon, Fawsley and Preston Capes before joining the moderate route around Adstone towards our destination at Towcester. Of course we could end up as a steady depending on numbers on the day.


From the café there’s only 10 miles to ride before we get back to the start. Just Shutlanger and Blisworth really.
It’s a classy café which we haven’t done for a while. Join us if you can.
