|This a lovely ride with a mix of nice fast parts, where you can push it and get your bike shifting, and some reasonable hills to climb. However, if you want something more leisurely, you can take a bit more time and enjoy the countryside. There are plenty of pubs to visit and a dip at Allhallows if you want to. The route is mostly on quiet roads, while on the only very busy bit, coming back from Stoke, there are cycle tracks if you need them. Good for road bikes, no rough stuff but with some small adjustments you could easily add some off road sections.
