Well the date is set: Sunday 14th March. Rob (rc200ti) as deputy AEC has put this route together (marked in pink and blue) as a gentle introduction to the rides possible in the East Midlands area.
We plan to be out all day, taking it very steady for all abilities, but there are plenty of short cuts if any/all riding want to head to the pub earlier than planned
The ride takes in much of the countryside around the South Derbyshire village of Ticknall - famous for former occupants Edwina Currie (MP) and Ted Moult ("Fit the Best...Everest!"
). There are reservoirs, hills, country lanes, farm tracks, woods, (did I mention pubs?!) you name it we have it here. None of it is exposed so even if the weather is bad we are never far from shelter or a pub. Or both preferably
You'll get muddy and wet - so be prepared. We're not likely to get bogged down though.
There is plenty of free parking and some toilets at the village hall car park which we propose to be the starting point.
More details closer to the time.
