David went on this ride and writes:
We started out from Sixfields Football Stadium about 10 a.m. It was overcast and coldish. The first stop at Catthorpe was reached at 11.30 a.m. Further north we cycled through Kirby Mallory and then Market Bosworth was a welcome break for me, having run out of water. The cafe was hidden at the end of a courtyard.
Our destination – the National Forest YH at Moira, Derbyshire – was reached at 5.00 p.m. Tired, an eco-shower was appreciated followed by a rest in front of the TV (Six Nations rugby) before ordering dinner.
The return journey involved cycling down the A444 to Shenton for our first break at “The Gallery” Tea Room and Antique Barns, a short distance from where we were just in time to see the steam train leaving at Shenton station.
We cycled up to the battlefield at Bosworth (1485 – Henry Tudor defeated Richard III – “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!”) to see the commemorative flag.
The weather improved and the wind was behind us so our rendezvous at Catthorpe for 2.30 p.m. with other CTC Northampton members was on time.
A trip of 120 miles.
