Launde. The word to strike fear into any whose post-café form is not great. With it's 18% gradient straight from the stop, it is not to be taken lightly, but it is a lovely place to stop in any weather, so we do it anyway!
This route approaches from the East after rolling around the valley, through Wing and then heading to Braunston. It's not so long at 60km, with Launde coming up after 40km, so fine for a winter ride.
Here are two 55 Km loops that leave the clubhouse, go West around Market Harborough and then return to the start point for refreshments. One loop goes clockwise, and the other simply reverses the ride and goes anti-clockwise - make sure you download the right one!
For a Sunday club run, go anti-clockwise and stop off at Waterloo Farm, just North of Great Oxendon.
Here are some routes that we regularly use for club runs. Use the Categories to limit the routes you see. The compass points relate to where the ride goes from the clubhouse. Routes can be downloaded for your cycle computer, either directly as a GPX or via Strava for TCX.
