|This is a road route, on a mix of A, B and country roads, that has wide, nicely undulating roads, with only 2 real hills in there, 1 hard and 1 medium steepness and duration. I've done this on a road bike, although I had to cycle across a field by Dutton Locks. It's a good ride overall and I did it the first time in 2 hr 22 min.
