Some suggested routes We have listed a few routes that maybe of interest that can be downloaded onto a GPS device, or for those who have a Smartphone Strava; free to use mapping and ride data. Starting with the shortest, scrolling down to the longest.
Please Note all routes are intended as suggestions only, when following any course, on any gps device there are quirks and anomalies that can occur, so always have a good idea where you are going! Yes Paul has created these routes over roads he has ridden before, but he has not then ridden each again just to see if the course works when uploaded onto a gps device! In fairness even if he had there will probably be occasions where the course will not upload to your device exactly as created. We suggest you always have a paper back up; perhaps zoom in to the course via the links below, do a screen shot then print off section of the course you are not sure of.
At the risk of stating the obvious never blindly follow a course, it may navigate you the wrong way around a mini roundabout, take you the wrong side of a bollard, or as is commonplace on a straight road for no reason what so ever it may take you twenty yards up a side road then back again! That said like most modern tech' when it works it is indeed fabulous, but when it doesn't a GPS is just as likely to drive you round the bend instead of navigating you around it! At all times you are responsible for your own safety; if the route looks like you are about to ride off a cliff then don't follow it; you will hurt yourself,
Inn on the Pond and Mercers Lake 6 mile flat loop
A popular choice for those hiring our Power Assist, hybrid and mtb bikes. This is a good route for new riders as a little taster to see what joys cycling can bring into your life. Much of the 6 mile circuit is on quiet roads and non technical tracks that make up part of the 'National Cycle Route 21 (NCR 21)', with a potential refreshment stop at the Inn on the Pond. Cycling doesn't have to be about pain gain and victory, mile munching for hours on end! It can be about 'chilling out', not 'working out', enjoying the countryside, the fresh air and just being outdoors; perhaps with a cheeky stop at a local 'Inn'. The feel good factor that this can bring for many can be just the tonic they need to gently cycle away the day to day stresses of our busy modern day lives, you're doing your self good on so many levels; go on, give it a try, you know it makes sense.
