Ride to Orlingbury – Saturday 7th December

Brian Tunbridge is leading this ride and writes:

Start time: 9.30 a.m.
Meeting point: Moulton Co-op, Stocks Hill, Moulton, NN3 7TB
(There is free parking at Moulton. Access is via the lane opposite the Co-op alongside the pub.)
Distance: Brisk 42 miles, moderate 32 miles
Refreshment stop: Cafe Wythmails at Orlingbury
Pace: Brisk 14mph, Moderate 12mph

Choice of two groups, riding at a slightly different pace.
Brisk (42 miles) 14+ mph and moderate (32miles) at 12+ mph average speeds. The route is all on roads.


The ride starts at Moulton Co-op (MCP) and heads out to Holcot, Old, and then single track to Mawsley. At Harrington we turn off to Kelmarsh and on to Clipston and Gt Oxendon on quiet undulating roads. Then east to Braybrooke and down to Thorpe Underwood before crossing over the A14 to Orton and Loddington. Not too far then to Broughton and the Wythmails cafe for coffee where both groups will meet up. The café is in the attractive village of Orlingbury just off the main green.

The Moderate pace group will turn off to Arthingworth just before Kelmarsh and head off across narrow roads to join the route above at Thorpe Underwood. After the cafe stop it is only a short ride back to Moulton via Hannington.

 

The sun should be out by Saturday so do join us.
