Great ride, I have wanted to do this since I moved to the area and this site spurred me on to do it today. I don't know who calculated the mileage, but it felt a lot further than 11 miles.

The great news for anyone who is a returning cyclist (like me)is that its flat! It follows the shropshire canal, so you take in some wonderful scenery. It is however a fly in the teeth ride, especially near the farms. All in all, a terrific few hours of solitude!
