We’ve made a start on walking the Rutland Round, which is a circular walk of about 65 miles round the county of Rutland. Today we did stage one, which took us from Oakham to Uppingham.

All going well, we will do the next stage at some point next week. Which will take us from Uppingham to Barrowden.

Longest cycle of October 2012 so far…

I have done 244.2 miles so far this month. Making it the most ever miles I have done in any October, well since I started keeping a full log away.  Oh and believe it or not this the first time I have ever cycling right into Oakham. I need to make sure I do it again, it’s a nice wee Market Town to look around.

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

Route map:-

The dark blue section of the route, shows new roads I covered during the cycle. That was myself looking for Tesco. Which I could remember that Oakham had one, but was not to sure where it was, since I have only been once and that was maybe 4+ years ago.
