Leicestershire and Rutland Bridleways Association’s TWO COUNTIES CHALLENGE RIDE
Level of difficulty GRADE 5. 13 miles (with possible shorter route). This Ride explores the quiet lanes, peaceful, gentle countryside, and NEW BWs created as a result of the redesigning of the Catthorpe Interchange. It includes crossing the River Avon on new wide bridges and passing under the A14 and M1. This is not as scary as it sounds as it is surprisingly quiet under these roads.
There is a mounting block at each end of the bridge under the A14 as you will be required to dismount. The BW shares the bridge with the river but there is a good substantial (metal) barrier alongside. You may encounter cattle and there will be some gates – difficult ones will be stewarded as will a road crossing (not a main road but can be busy sometimes).
The new BWs are the result of years of long hard campaigning by the LRBA. So please come along and try them!
