Top Lodge café at Fineshade Wood can get busy if the weather is good, but there's lots of room and an outside courtyard. Fineshade is one of the last remaining wooded areas left of the old Rockingham Forest.
This loop starts off going West from the club, then swings up North through Uppingham and Rutland before returning across the Welland Valley to Fineshade. The total loop is 75km; here's the route in Strava.
The challenge to us is to follow this boundary (as best as the roads/tracks allow). This gives a ride of about 150 Km/90 miles, including a bit of gravel along the Brampton Valley.
Here's a link to a Strava route for you to follow.
If you prefer you can break the route near Islip Furnaces and head back via Grafton Underwood.
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.
