This week we have a route Alex Blackall set for us in August 2019.
You should know who he is now !
Alex Blackall here, and I am your Routemaster this week, rejoice!
Which one is Alex? you may be thinking.. I’m that one in his early 30’s, you know the one that is kind of average height, with the regular hair, and the generic face. You can’t miss me!
I’m playing it very safe with this route, as the light is fading and it is time to get reacquainted with our old friends, red brick and tarmac.
Here we go;
Up Warwick Park! > Hawkenbury > Dunorlan lake loop > Up and out to Pembury Road > Right on to Calverley Road > Past the Police Station > Over the crossroads, past Trinity > Up the windy path > Fly down Molyneux > Crawl up Bishops Down Rd and Hurstwood Lane > Bishops Down > Rusthall Loop > Major Yorks and home.
Map is below;
The full route is 7.3 miles and the shorter options are;
Cut off Dunorlan loop by continuing on Bayhall – 6.3m
Cut off Rusthall loop – 5.8m
Cut off both – 5m
It’s a mixture of on and off road (but no mud !) so best to wear hi vis or something bright and advisable to leave your new pair of Nike Vapour Fly Next % at home.
The weather forecast is for 22C and sunny – can you believe it !!!!
7:00 start from the Nevill – change rooms, showers and bar all open – it’s time to commit !
