Glapthorn near Oundle, Northamptonshire
Length: Nine and twelve miles
Level of difficulty: GRADE 3
A new, but well received Ride last year, across unspoilt rolling countryside with spectacular views. Some of the route is arable land crossed by extensive bridleways but it also passes through quite dense woodland where deer may be seen. Nine mile route is almost entirely off road, 12 miles has some country roads passing through a village with a pub. Both routes may encounter cattle but there are only a few gates – difficult ones will be left open or stewarded. Both routes will pass through a cattle yard which will be well-stewarded and cross some wide, wooden bridleway bridges.
- There will be a VERY SHORT section on a verge with a steward in attendance along the A43.
- There will be a Car Park charge of £3 per ADULT rider payable in cash on the day.
- Parking by kind permission of Mr and Mrs C. Crosby.
