There is some car parking in the close or near the library.
Distance: 32 miles for the Moderate ride, 38 miles for the Brisk ride
Refreshment stop: The Barn Cafe Restaurant, Upper Stowe
Pace: Moderate (11 – 12 mph), Brisk (14+ mph)
Time Expected Back: 1:30 pm
We have a pair of rides this Saturday to the café at Upper Stowe – one at a Moderate pace (approx 11 – 12 mph) and another at a Brisk pace (14+ mph).
Both weave their way along mainly quiet lanes to the south west of Northampton through villages such as Gayton, Cold Higham, Little Preston, Farthingstone and Nether Heyford. There is also the odd hill to ensure that any cake consumed at the café is well deserved, but, as it is a circular route, rest assured there are compensating downhill sections for recovery.
Hopefully our subscription to “please-can-it-be-warm-and-sunny-today.co.uk” won’t have expired and we will be blessed with glorious winter sunshine..
Meet at Overslade Close, East Hunsbury to depart at 9:30.

Note – I’m happy to lead either the Brisk or the Moderate ride, but the other ride will be “self led” so please load the route(s) on your bike computer if you have one. I’ll make the decision on the day based on who turns up as to which ride I will be leading.
