Summary:
A non-technical ride on quiet country roads and rolling off-road tracks. Not for thrill seekers but some reasonable climbs and gentle descents. Sheet 141 Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger is needed.
Not suitable between Nov. and April (depending on rain) as tracks very sticky mud, unless frozen.
Ride can be shortened or extended to suit.
Great on summers day.
