Off road ride to Salcey Forest, Sunday 3rd July

Start time: 9:30am
Meeting point: Brampton Valley Way, Welford Crossing, NN6 8AA
Distance: 37 mls
Refreshment Stop: Forest Café, Salcey Forest
Average Pace: 12mph
Time Expected Back: Around 1.30pm

This is a mostly off-road ride on a mixture of country park trails, cycle paths and canal side tracks with some ordinary tarmac sections linking the various parks. So an MTB or Gravel bike is required.

From BVW we head up to the turn off onto Merry-Tom lane which leads us to the bridleway across Brampton golf course and Harlestone Firs.

From there we head towards Duston and Upton Park and ride a short section of canal path before heading off into Hunsbury Hill park.

Our next objective is Foxfield Park off the Quinton Road and Salcey Forest for the coffee stop.

We then traverse Salcey Forest to Piddington,  and the NCN 6 to Great Houghton. Still on NCN 6 we branch off through to Brackmills and head along the Nene riverside to Northampton UNI.

Then it’s Grand Union canal side riding through to Sixfields, back onto the cycle track to Kingsthorpe and the last section on BVW to our start point.

The Ride GPS route is: Off-road steady Sunday 3rd July
