The ride this Sunday is from East Hunsbury to Stowe Gardens, with a refreshment stop at the National Trust Nevillery Cafe there.

This is a second attempt at the ride that I cancelled a couple of weeks ago – this time the weather is actually looking OK – no high winds or torrential rain is forecast. Yet.

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 cafe 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.
