An on-road cycle ride taking in parts of Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire. Through gently rolling countryside on minor roads and country lanes, it weaves through tranquil villages and over canal, river and railway. At the south west corner of the route you can stop on the bridge of a single track lane and watch the motorway traffic hurtle beneath. A few metres further on you are back to a scene barely changed in centuries. There are recommended shortcuts which may be appreciated by young families or less energetic riders.
