This route starts at the Bosworth Battlefield Centre, you'll ride around some of the beautiful Leicestershire villages that played a part in the historic battle  that saw the end of the Plantagenet dynasty and heralded the start of the Tudors. The route then passes through the village of Dadlington, where many of the fallen from the battle were buried; Sutton Cheney where Richard is said to have taken communion on his way to the battle and the picturesque town of Market Bosworth. It also visits Stoke Golding, which stakes the claim of being the birthplace of the Tudor dynasty - Henry was allegedly proclaimed King of England on the village green. The route will also pass through Cadeby where the famous Rev Teddy Boston had his miniature railway.
