view over Rothbury

view over Rothbury

Tim Carpenter from recommended this route up to Simonside woods overlooking Rothbury, certainly a steep pull for this flatlander, probably nothing for a local, but well worth it for the views, played a bit in the woods and then consulting the map tried to plan a circular route finishing on a disused railway, unfortuneatly it was just that, disused! overgrown and immpassible so again got the map out and found a bridleway going in the right direction, thick grass and entirely uphill made it tough going though, would be miserable in rubbish weather but thank goodness it was warm and sunny
ride 87
12 miles
total 1125
