We wanted to give you a medium option without too many hills. Something to get the miles in that was achievable with the shorter day yet still enjoy the gorgeous scenery, quiet roads and delightful villages on offer in this part of the World.

On the way out to the feed, we hit some lumps as we plough through the Howardian Hills, an area of much beauty. The lumps aren’t too dramatic but they are steep, you’ll know when you arrive at the foot of them!

As always, a BBQ Sausage and Erdinger await! you at the finish.
