Hi guys, new poster, joined this forum due to the sheer number of posts about the Roman Lakes and surrounding area and it seems a lot more laid back with less aggression than some other forums I've viewed!
I've started checking out routes around the Roman Lakes, and wondered if anyone had links to their Strava routes of good bang for buck loops.
Heres what I rode at weekend and everyone seemed to be going the opposite direction LOL
From Roman Lakes the climb up Nields Way wasn't great, too slippy, too many rocks to get good ascent speed, and interrupted by lots of dirt bikes.
Then it was more climbing up gibb lane, whetmorhurst road, boggaurd road and the first half of black lane, before I got any descent in.
I took the route down some steep steps and down a footpath behind houses which wasn't that great, then headed back to Nields way and the ride down the rocky river was great, sort of descent I prefer.
I've seen some segements which possibly look a better descent "not the banks DH" and also "stawberry golf course" but some better loops would be great, to get to the high points and down again
