|I liked this route, its on my doorstep and was quite easy to follow. I am new to cycling so 20 miles seemed about right to start with. Im training for the C2C and ride a claude Butler Urbon 100 hybrid with fully laden rear paniers and handlebar bag. this route did not test me, but I was in no hurry. I may build up to do 2 - 3 loops of the route at the weekends as the hills are not too demanding.|
