Cycle Steps
This is a great route for general touring the Northants/Oxon/Bucks country villiages and its virtualy traffic free country lanes with no major climbs. The route does have a bit of a climb when you reach Weebon Beck and head torwards Farthingstone. Once you are past Farthingstone there are mainly slight gradients and easy rolling roads.
NB:Junctions to take care on
1) Crossing over A45 at Flore
2)Turning Right on to the A5 at Stowe Hill
3)The round about on the A43 at the Charlton/Evenley Junction
4)Turning right off the A5 at the Shutlanger/Stoke Bruerne Junction
5) crossing A508 at Aston/Stoke Bruerne junction.
6) the Bedford Rd roundabout (traffic light controlled ,but there's an cycle path alternative)
