Meet at Greenfingers to roll out to Sutton Bonnington for a 76 mile route (Charnwood Primavera sportive) which will make it about 98 miles from Beeston (so yeah, we need to go around the block a couple of times to get up to the ton).
Pace will be according to the group - I'd think it'll be about 16.5/17 mph average - but there are a couple of bail out points on the route (Griffydam perhaps?) for those that need to get back earlier.
At least one cafe stop, maybe two depending on the legs and the lungs. I'm sure George or Paul will be along to give hearty recommendations as to where.


Beehive at Rolliston, route goes past it. I know of it, but can't vouch, bit early mind, unless you do that western loop other way, which won't make much difference, it's pretty topographically neutral!

Yep, been to the Beehive. It's an option even though it has the feel of a campsite cafe - a bit like Dove Cottage.

I will join for a while as I have to be back to look after poorly son as nadia and Sorcha enjoy splendour.

The Honeypot is the only one I can think of in the first half, in the 2nd half there are loads in and about swithland but maybe thats a bit late?

Those of you wanting to shorten it, this is what I'm doing I think,
