Start time: 9.30 a.m.
Meeting point: Hunsbury Hill library, Overslade Close, East Hunsbury NN4 0RZ
Distance: 61 miles
Café stop: Gilks garage café, Kineton
Next Sunday’s ride is to an interesting café stop in the village of Kineton in Warwickshire. Gilks Garage Café is a themed café based around the history of the garage throughout the 1900’s. It was closed for some time until re opening as a café some years later in the original location.
This is a longer than usual Sunday ride but well within the range of most of our riders. It was mentioned to me by my boss as a great place to visit around a week ago and we’ve quickly decided to put together a suitable route to what looks like a fabulous location. It certainly looks like a cycle friendly place.
The initial part of the ride will all seem familiar to most until we go over the M40 into unchartered roads. The same goes for the ride back. The profile doesn’t look too demanding although I see the route goes through Priors Marston on the way back which might test us somewhat although the views are wonderful overlooking Hill Farm!
Thanks to Brian and PeteB for working on this route which may change before we even start. But it looks as good as any for this new adventure.
