19-Mar-2013 : Second 50+ mile cycle of the year

Today I did, what is only my second 50+ mile cycle of the year. I did not even mean to. I was hoping just to cycle to Oakham via Stamford and Rutland Water and back. But since it turned out to be a very nice day. I ended up cycling out of Oakham along National Cycle Network Route 63 and covered miles and miles of road I never ever been on before. Most of the time I had not idea where I was at all. It ended up being a great cycle. I will sure head out that way again!

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.
