Having recently taken up cycling (6 months) I was looking for something a little more challenging. This route is ideal. Lovely scenery, once you get out of Corby, and tough enough to get you working hard. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Tried this yesterday, real nice ride brilliant view. couple of testing climbs.

My first ride of ten miles will defo do again

Dont take a wrong turning into Rockingham, as I did, or else you'll be faced with ten mins of hard climbing up Rocky Hill.

I do this route from Uppingham, preferring to cut straight from Cottingham to Gretton since I don't like Corby much. Its a great route with a wide variety of gradients. To cut it short for a 40-50 minute ride you can cut through Great Easton-Caldecott-Lyddington, but be warned that the climb from Lyddington to Seaton road is some serious gradient.
