Milton Keynes (Central Station) to Daventry – 32 miles
Monday 8th July
The route follows cycle tracks in Milton Keynes, and then part of a national cycle route through parkland, then on tarmac roads through Northamptonshire villages. There are quite a few pubs en route, and a great tea or lunch stop at 12 miles at Stoke Bruerne on the canal. There is an ‘interesting’ 13-17% hill to finish! Finish point is Leisure Lakes Cycles in Daventry.
Level of difficulty:
Easy but with that final steep hill.
