Ride to Stowe – Cancelled


Unfortunately, storm Dennis has not changed course or timing, and, as feared, Sunday’s forecast is awful, with very high winds and heavy rain.
Therefore I have cancelled this weekend’s ride.

I will re-schedule this for 2 weeks time on 1st March.  I will re-confirm the ride nearer this date.

Cheers – Peter


Peter Bayles is leading this ride and writes:

Start time:  9.30 a.m.
Meeting point:  Hunsbury Hill Library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury, NN4 0RZ
There is parking in the close or near the library
Distance:  44 mls
Refreshment stop:  The Nevillery Café at Stowe, 26 mls
Average Pace:   Steady ~13 to 14 mph
Time Expected Back:  Around 2.00pm

The ride this Sunday is from East Hunsbury to Stowe Gardens, with a refreshment stop at the Nevillery Café there.
The bad news is that the weather is not looking very promising to say the least, with high winds and copious precipitation forecasted.  I will cancel the ride nearer the day if this doesn’t change.

Weather permitting, we will leave East Hunsbury, riding past Milton Malsor, turning right down Gayton Road, past Gayton Marina, and on to Tiffield.  Almost through Tiffield, we hang a right and ride through Caldecote and on to the A5.  Crossing the A5 a few hundred metres North (there is a path along side the busy road), we will ride West through Duncote, Greens Norton, Bradden, Wappenham to Helmdon.

After Helmdon we change direction, passing through Syresham, following Welsh Lane into Stowe Gardens to our refreshment stop at the National Trust café there.

The return route is through Chackmore and Whittlebury, crossing the A5 again at Heathencote before riding through Blisworth and back through Milton Malsor.

As always, any new riders would be very welcome.
