Ride to Preston Capes, Saturday 12th June

PhilipG is leading this ride and writes:

Start time: 9.30am
Meeting point: Hunsbury Hill library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ
Distance: 36/41 miles
Refreshment Stop: Woodhouse Toad in Preston Capes
Average Pace ride: Moderate/Brisk

Next Saturday’s CTC rides take us via South Northamptonshire’s and Daventry’s rolling terrain to a new coffee stop. They also include a (hopefully) interesting detour towards the end. There are a couple of challenges/ risks to point out as well.

The coffee stop is Woodhouse Toad in Preston Capes. Good coffee and cake in a simple outdoor setting.

After that there is an interesting hill on each of the routes. There is also a detour to the lovely village of Church Stowe to see St Michael’s Church – only from outside as currently closed, but even that is worthwhile.

The route from there goes north-west along the A5 for one mile to the Nether Heyford turn. If you are not happy with this, you are welcome to either cut out Church Stowe and return via Upper Stowe and Bugbrooke, or you can visit both villages.

Routes below.

Moderate 36 miles https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36267962

Brisk 41 miles EH-Culworth-PCapes-41

Meet 9.30 am at Hunsbury Library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ.

As usual, you need to book, so please let me know if you want to attend, or have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you,
