Milton is leading this Boxing day ride and writes:
Meeting point: Nene Whitewater Centre, Bedford Road, NN4 7AA
Distance: 28 miles
Refreshment stop: Forest Café, Salcey
Pace: Hangover slow
Time Expected Back: Lunchtime
This is not an especially challenging route given the unhealthy post-prandial state of most participants, but it does include the hill up to Castle Ashby via Whiston and there is a short clamber up to Ravenstone after by-passing Olney …. so, not without its little obstacles!
Cogenhoe, Castle Ashby, Yardley Hastings, Olney (by-passed), Stoke Goldington, Café and back. 28 miles in all, 20 of them to the café, so a simple totter home in time to start the whole she-bang again!
It is optional to come along wearing Santa outfits or reindeer horns etc, but please note that those making these sartorial choices will be expected to ride at least 2 miles behind the rest of us.
See you on Boxing Day
