Looks like a perfect fixie ride, although stockwood hill is nasty steep hill.

East Dundry road is in really bad condition unless they've resurfaced it recently. I would suggest taking an alternative route Mark.

Went to bs with funky, realised it was the wrong place. Rushed to willy wicket, No one there. Started chasing down the route but me and funky couldn't use the Garmin properly. Funky carried on a bit later without me as I got a Minty!. Got another one 10 mins later. But made it home just in time. Off for a few days holiday and boy do I need it Smile morale of the story...dont assume.
