A steady ride starting from Wellington Civic & Leisure Centre heading out onto the Silkin Way to Bratton then to Longdon on Tern via the B5063 then onto quiet country lanes to Upton Magna before retracing our steps on National Cycle Route 81 back to Wellington.

A mixture of urban riding in Wellington, B roads and quiet country lanes. With the exception of riding out from and back to the Civic & Leisure Centre the roads are relatively quiet with a total of just over 520 ft climbing.

There is an option to call at The Village Store in Upton Magna.

Riders are actively encouraged to wear an approved cycle helmet. Riders should be self sufficient and carry a spare tube, pump and associated equipment to change a punctured tyre. It is suggested that a waterproof jacket is also carried - even though its summertime.

First-timers welcome!
