End of season ride around the Vale

8:00 Sun, 21 Oct 2018

Distance: 110.00km

Duration: 4hr 0

End of season ride anyone?
Thinking about a ride out along the Belvoir ridge to Woolsthorpe and the castle and back via Cafe Velo verde.
8am start for a 50 mile ride out.
9am for a more direct and social ride?
Meet at the cafe at about 11.
Plenty of options to cut short on the route if we're pushed for time.
Back home after the cafe in the most direct way, via Radcliffe.
Probably 65-70 all in for the longer route?
Who's keen?


I fancy this (though probably at my own pace).
Route/ GPX?

Nice one Russ.
I'll put one together, I'd of thought Sawley-Kegworth-Wysall-Willoughby-Six hills-Nottingham lane-Belvoir ridge-Knipton-Woolsthorpe-Long lane to Harby-Langar-Bingham-Cafe!
Open to suggestions?
Opportunity to drop off the ridge earlier at Harby, Stathern or at the castle, if needed?
