A hilly ride with a couple of off-road sections of around 55 miles to Kerry Vale Vineyard, returning via The Bog.
Leaving Shrewsbury through Annscroft to Pontesbury and Minsterley, the first climb of the day takes us up to Hopesgate and onwards over Stapely Hill past Mitchells Fold stone circle. More off road follows over the shoulder of Corndon before dropping down to Church Stoke and our lunch stop at Kerry Vale Vineyard.
The homeward route starts by returning through Church Stoke before climbing up to Hyssington. Tiny lanes take us through Nind and the climb up to afternoon tea at The Bog. Over the top of the Stiperstones and another off-road section takes us past Gatten to rejoin the Cothercott road. The descent of Cothercott follows, then return to Shrewsbury via Stapleton and Condover.
