25 mile bike ride on a variety of cycle paths, small roads and "A" roads with a pub stop at either Breaston, Stanton-by-Dale or Dale Abbey depending on time when we get there and how we feel! 10.45am is the SET OFF time from Cathedral Green so allow enough time to get you and your bike there and ready before that. For anyone going to the Park Run beforehand I'll set off from the café in the park (if that's where you are having breakfast?) at 10.30am, and arrive on Cathedral Green at 10.40am, ready for 10.45 set off.
First half is flattish, second half is a bit hilly.
For anyone wishing to check out the route in advance, it is: River path to Borrowash, A6005 then canal path to Breaston, north to Risley, almost to Sandiacre on B5010, then north to Stanton by Dale, west to Dale Abbey, west to A6096, then NE towards Ilkeston, left to Stanley, back along the top of Chaddeston Common/Oakwood and at the A608 transfer to the Great Northern Greenway past Breadsall and then along the old racecourse to end in Chester Green.
