This is a picturesque ride that starts at Furzton Lake & goes to Jennie Wren's Tea Rooms on the Market Square in Winslow, then returns by the same route. The route is just over 9 miles each way, 18.5 miles in total. Predominantly off road with a few short country road sections to join up the off road. Starts on quiet Redways that run beside the lake on paved & gravel paths crossing a few wooden bridges. Through Bletchley we leave the Redways to join a secluded farm track road, a little muddy if it's been raining! Great views over the countryside, crossing a few roads to emerge in Winslow town centre. Some gentle climbs on the way out on tarmac gravel & mud paths to a well earned rest with cake of course! Then a quicker peddle back, mainly downhill & flat to return to Furzton Lake. Most bikes are suitable, except road bikes with skinny tyres. During Autumn/Winter this route can be quite muddy in places, so extremely slick tyres are not a good idea.  You don't have to be an experienced rider to join us, but be able to keep a leisurely continuous pace & we can always stop if needed to take in the views. There are a few farm gates where we'll need to stop anyway. A lovely ride with great views & a few nice challenges over a good distance to deserve a cake stop! Approximately 1 hour 15 on the way out, 1 hour on the return, with time for stopping in-between. Facilities available at Premier Inn on Furzton Lake & at Jennie Wren's Tea Rooms.
