Cycle Steps
This is based on a route created by the Warwickshire Tourist Board but I have started from Sainsburys car park instead of the town centre as it offers better parking.
The route heads out past Draycote Water and through the villages to the south of Rugby. Road Bikes should consider traveling through the centre of Dunchurch to avoid the bridleway but great care should be taken.
Please also be very careful when crossing the Fosseway near the Boat Inn. The canal tow path can be used to pass under the road.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Draycote Water. The Boat Inn public house. The village farm Nurseries Cafe just as you leave Barby village.

Really nice route, particularly enjoyed Broadwell to Willoughby, Friday night rush hour just me and some sheep. Good climb into Barby, well a good work out for a fatty like me :D

I liked this route and did it at the weekend. The route was clear and gives a good mix of roads, canal paths and cycle paths. I started from Hillmorton and also added a lap of Draycote water (anticlockwise) Length with additions was about right the hills were quite tought on my old clunker but very good training for the C2C. Will do this again some time.
