Overview: This route is a circuit around and through part of this nice river valley. It is on bridleways and country lanes but does have several busy road crossings. It makes a lovely summer evening ride. The trails can vary in quality depending on recent weather and the passage of off-road vehicles and horses. Don't bother if it has been wet for a prolonged period.
