    Interested - certainly tough - from what I can make out it looks like one that throws in plenty of small lane climbs if you like that kind of thing - route looks a bit convoluted at times but it'd certainly give you a taste of what that area has to offer.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.
  • Broadly agree with the above, many of my favourite bits of tarmac are included in that route
    Its a pity the route goes down Abney though, its better as a climb IMO

    Also Id be wary of having lots and lots of groups of cyclists out together on small lanes
    There isnt room to get two cars abreast down many of those roads

    Do sportive organisers need to get advice from Police on route and road safety kind of stuff?
