  • The route to the Tea Room in the Forest is a little one dimensional with Milton Keynes in the way to the south, although a longer ride through and up to is possible?
    So to date the following two routes have been done as shown or mixed...

    Route one: this one is the shorter of the two at 41 miles there and back with two loops, basically heading for Stoke Bruerne from both directions, Starting out through the town to Maids Moreton (Chackmore can be used) on to Lillingstone Lovell past Wicken Woods, Paulesbury, Pury End, Shutlanger, through Stoke Bruerne to Hartwell over the M1 to the tea stop... retrace back to Stoke Bruerne.. turn left before the canal bridge to the A508 for a mile dash then right off to Alderton on to Paulesbury, return to Wicken to loop through Leckampstead, Maids Moreton and home..

    Distance: 41 miles.
    Gradient: Rolling­/12604670

    Route 2: a few miles longer this one as you head out up Stowe Avenue to and through Silverstone out and over the A43 heading for Whittlebury but turn left for Shutlanger and once through take the left at the x-roads for Blisworth, take the right, then right in the village heading for the A508 where you go left (take care as this is a busy road) down passed the speed camera and right for Quinton, again right as you head for the forest (5 miles) tea stop. The return as above as you head through Hartwell to Stoke Bruerne over the canal on to Shutlanger, continue through over the A5 heading for Whittlebury but turn left for Pury End/Paulesbury and as above back to Wicken, Leckampstead, Maids Moreton and home..

    Distance: 44 miles
    Gradient: Rolling­/13824812

    you can mix the two and easily made longer ...

  • Good work Paul. I don't think that i need to worry about the speed camera at Quinton. Wishful thinking.
