The route takes in just under 10 miles of great cycle paths.  Exploring North East Swindon you’ll pass "Nessie", who resides in the Coleview Play Park and the fantastic White Hart Bridge. There's a small climb up over the busy roundabout - over the A420 and under the A419; but your climb is rewarded with amazing views of the Ridgeway.  After edging past this popular shopping district, you intersect the path leading to the nearby Gablecross Police Station passing through South Marston and the peaceful countryside. Other sights of interest include Oxford University's new Bodleian Library storage facility, Oxleaze Woods and the SEVOR solar farm.  The route passes Nightingale Woods where you can explore it’s Trim Trail, bird hide and Dog Dip before arriving at Roves Farm.  Roves Farm is a great stopping point to meet and feed the animals and there’s a fabulous tea room there too! You return via the same route back to Dorcan Recreational Complex.
