The ride goes out through Holcot, Draughton to Harrington. We then head due North on a very lumpy section often on single track roads (all metalled) in a series of climbs to be rewarded with long fast descents, especially in Dingley. To cross from one quiet lane to the next there are very short sections on main roads. At Weston by Welland we are in the valley for a flat respite then across to Ashley and down to Wilbarston for a coffee stop at The Milking Parlour Cafe at Wilbarston (seating and bike parking in the courtyard ).
From here it is a short ride back though the quiet lanes around Pipewell to Desborough and then back to Harrington, Walgrave and Moulton.
For those who would like to stretch their legs a little more there is an extended route through Medbourne.

Please remember to book with me either by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via text. Depending on numbers we may need to ride in groups.
Please note this is a small change to the original Medbourne route because the Neville café has not opened yet.
