|Nice ease route. Have cycled around this area lots, it is very pleasant area and I can recommend it to anyone. Also there are plenty of nice pubs around the area, try the Railway.|

|The route is very enjoyable - our first proper ride. However, we came unstuck at the first crossing of the motorway...|
..the route leads you down the thorny garden path and into a field - 1/2 hour of walking unless you want to spend 1/2 hour repairing punctures!
The field hammered our average speed and so we're going to do the run again next week avoiding the muddy bits!
Really enjoyed it nonetheless...

|Route is quite a pleasant one, one we'll do again.|
One problem we found and that might be down to my map reading skills (or lack) is the first crossing of the motorway - if you follow the route you end up down a lane, a thorny dirt track and through a ploughed field - all needed to be walked for 1/2 hour or you would spend a further 1/2 hour repairing punctures!
We'll be doing the run again next week but with the appropriate detour... :)
