Planning to ride Sunday - about 20 miles. Going with a buddy who has not ridden for a while, so want to put a good trip together. I don't know the area that well so have poured over a few maps and gpx files.
Probably park at Church Stretton:
Unsure how to start: Might avoid Carding Mill. Have gone over through the golf club before and on to Plush Hill. It was OK. Perhaps should try Portway/ Darnford/ Ratlinghope. Then its either straight up to shooting box or on to Coates Farm and up. Any advice here?
To end I thought Minton Batch, Hamperly, Nut Batch back up to Port Way
Then down to Handless Farm, through Asterton, climb up Stanbatch, descend to Little Stretton.
Looks like a great route on paper - any hints or tips appreciated.
Can we go in the pub at Bridges in our kit or will it be posh Sunday lunch only?
