Hi again. I did the route today and it was great. Im not sure that the distance is correct (damn google maps) but its a great ride. I started at sinderland road and finished there, it was 29 miles from start to finish and it took me 1h 48mins. Its a great route for beginners and there are plenty of places to stop for a drink or something to eat. Recommended.
