Away-day ride to Stratford

Sunday, 11 July 2021 - 10:30am

Please logon to see the ride booking form (below the map)

Exploring the roads of south Warwickshire, taking in a section of disused railway line south from Stratford. Some hills but not too ‘bard’ (sorry!)
Arrive Chez Jon from 10am for coffee and cake.
The disused railway line is about 6k of compacted gravel – feels a bit like the Phoenix Trail.

The map is an embedded link from Ride with GPS. You can zoom in to see the route in as much detail as you like. For example, you can zoom in (using the + sign) to see exactly where the start is.

Ride report

Lovely ride on Warwickshire lanes to Stratford upon Avon. Briefly making an appearance (!) at the Royal Shakespeare Company building before a nice lunch at railway carriage café near racecourse. Harder ride back into SE wind with all significant hills in the last 15 miles so not sure why ride leader went a bit faster…… back to Milton for restorative cuppas and vegetarian paella. Two riders then cycled home as well!
