Tag: Old Dalby Test Track

14-Apr-2014 : Second cycle looking at Old Dalby Test Track

Today I put my bike in the back of my car. Then set up to Asfordby in Leicestershire. Then I had a fun cycle around, looking parts of the Old Dalby Test Track, that I did not see last week. Still got many more parts to check out. Since the line is 13.5 miles (21.7 km) in length.

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and some of the many photos I took :).

Old Dalby Test Track photos : 08-04-2014

Driven past the Old Dalby Test Track so many times! But never before stopped and had a look. Since I was on my bike, made the most of it. I had a look at a very small section of the line between Saxelby Village (bridge 52) and Saxelby tunnel.
