|A great ride but don't be fooled like I was by the 'time trial' reference, don't ride it on a road bike.. I'm no great rider but it took me over an hour and a quarter (on a road bike this is slow even for a fatty like me ;)|
From the fire station HQ through to Moor road is cart track type terrain, varied from stone chippings, to hard dirt track to slightly sandy. Probably the nicest views and really peaceful but you don't get chance to look or relax if your on 25mm wide tyres!!
To summarise a really nice ride on any other bike than a road bike. Thanks for putting it online, it showed me a new part of nottinghamshire near my house, ill definitely do it again - next time on my mountain bike though!
