Cycle Steps
1. This is a mixed route taking you through Leicester's industrial heartland and then out to some of its prettiest villages. Ridgemere Lane presents beautiful vistas across Leicestershire. There is a short cut from Scraptoft Golf Club to Humberstone on a field road which can be a bit muddy. The section on the Croxton Road is the hilliest so perhaps do this first while legs are fresh Barkby into town is a little flatter. Enjoy.
Landmarks/Sites to see?
Great pubs along Catherine Street selling really good Indian food would be a great reward at the end of the route. Farm shop on the Leicester side of Barkby.
