In the mood for a slightly daft outing
I just looked and can’t get Google Maps to give me 103 miles. The shortest run I can get is 123.
Would you plan on crossing the Severn at Gloucester? If so, as beautiful as the three A-Road choices are (A48; A4136; A40), they all present hazards for being wind-ey and narrow in parts. Of these, the A48 is the clearest in terms of driver’s visibility. It will have an effect at sunset.
But you probably knew that already.Posted 2 years ago
The sensible route as far as the map’s concerned involves a lot of the A46, which might be a bad thing.
Google maps, if you select work and home, gives me 97 miles (remember I live in the East of Cardiff) and a planned route on bike route toaster gives me 103.
I’d go to Gloucester then A48 all the way home.Posted 2 years agojekkylMember
I love daft ideas, think you might be underestimating your journey time a tad. Some route ideas here: http://www.cyclestreets.net/journey/46450543/Posted 2 years ago
click fastest/quietest/balanced at the top. The quietest usually suggest sustrans routes and bridleways sometimes so doable on a cx perhaps. I’ve used warick uni and junc 30 services postcode to aid you.
Well – everyone else will think it’s daft anyway.
I have to go to Warwick tomorrow, 10am-3pm. That gives plenty of time to get the train there and cycle back to Cardiff. 103 miles, getting me home at ooh, 9pm or so.
Woud you? Am I a nutter? Looks like a good day for it, and it’s pretty flat (only 1300m climbing) so I might even be able to set a century PB.Posted 2 years ago
