Cycle Steps
A nice start to this route with gentle rolling countryside.

Once you cross the Alcester Road it's a bit of a ramp up to Temple Grafton but the reward is a nice descent into Bidford.

The road from Bidford to Honeybourne can be a bit windy. The route takes you up fish hill a good alternative to avoid the traffic is to go up the escarpement from Saintbury.

There are no switchbacks to help you out but the quiet country lane more than makes up for it. Once at the top of the hill is a fast ride back to stratford whcih is generally downhill or flat.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Lots of country pubs should you feel the need. Nearest LBS is in Stratford.

Good route. Fish Hill a bit of a killer. I used the footpath as even on a sunday there were too many HGV's getting close on the ascent. Footpath has a higher puncture risk than the road.

Enjoyed the route especially the long descent in Chipping Camden.
