Café Stop: Delapre Golf Course Cafe
Estimated return: Around 1.30-2pm
This mostly off-road ride plans to explore the whereabouts and layout of the new MTB Bike Park adjacent to Delapre Golf course. The ride uses a variety of surfaces ranging from gravel track, grass canal side and tarmac so an MTB or gravel bike is required, not a road bike especially so for the time exploring the Bike Park, ideally a proper MTB would be necessary.
After leaving MCP we aim for Spectacle Lane and the causeway across Pitsford reservoir. We head via Brixworth down to BVW where we cross into Merry Tom Lane and travel via Chapel Brampton, the bridleway through Brampton Heath golf course through to Duston and Upton Park. Having negotiated Hunsbury Hill we use the regular cycle path to Delapre Golf course and arrive after 20 miles at the Golf Centre Cafe there which is right alongside the new Bike Park with a linking subway under the A45.
After refreshments, the intention is to spend some time exploring the Bike Park, seeing what it has to offer and maybe riding one or two of the trails.
We then head off on a shorter route (12m) back through Brackmills C.Pk, using the cycleway bordering the A45 Wetlands to the crossover point at Riverside.
Then it’s into Weston Favell village, back ways to Eastfield Park, Bradlaugh Park and returning to our start point Moulton Co-op making a total of 32m.
