A 12.4 miles nice variety of country to urban roads. A good challenge of open roads with nice calm cycle paths to catch your breathe, yes it can be busy but i like a challenge, so depending where you start (i start in the countryside), you go from country roads to main roads, to calm cycle paths and if you need anything from town its right there! This route avoids major junctions but it does take you through some traffic lights and Broomfield road is the busiest and bumpiest part. If you don't like bumps and potholes avoid broomfield road somehow although i can't find an easy solution. You can see the cycle path part covers all of the town centre and is completely sperate from the road. Its a good path split in 2 for cyclists and pedestrians. You might want to be careful on the weekends and monday morning due to broken glass from the drunken fools and it can get crowded at peak times but i find it a fun challenge weaving in and out, generally people stick to there side. The good thing about this route is its flexibility, you can chop off parts you don't like or if its wet you can cut out the countryside part which holds the water and mud for longer etc. Anyway enough said, this is the route i cycle everyday trying to beat my average speed score each time and perfect if i need anything from town, try it, and adapt the route for your needs!

I’d just like to point out that the path is used both by pedestrians and cyclists, and in the town can get quite busy. Being a cyclist myself, I’m very considerate when going through the town, but other cyclists have little regard for pedestrians, no matter how young or old. So please take consideration for people who are walking, I understand that some cyclists feel a need to try to beat their "average speed score/time" but try to remember the path isn't a race course!

I used this route, with a couple of miles tacked on, from home tonight. Nice quiet roads for night riding.
