Take Bridge Street north east and after 0.25 mile follow the gyratory by going left along Church Street and then left into Warwick Road (after the sharp right hand bend).  Continue straight on and the road becomes Charlecote Road. 

Cross over the A429 by-pass at the roundabout and continue for 1 mile to the Charlecote Pheasant where you turn left at the T-junction.  Just over 0.5 mile later cross over the Stratford Road onto Loxley Lane and follow it as it runs alongside the airfield.  After the airfield you reach a T-junction with the Loxley to Wellesbourne road, turn left and head back to the village.  On entering the village take the second right turn into Dovehouse Drive immediately before the Sainsbury’s Store.  Continue past the sports field and turn left into Valletta Way.  At the end of this cul-de-sac the road splits and opposite you on the left side is a footway (you must dismount for this section) leading to an underpass of the A429 ring road which brings you out onto Loxley Close where turning right brings you to Ettington Road.  Turn left to head back to Chestnut Square.


A ride close to the village of approximately 5 miles to get your legs stretched and familiar to riding on the road. For clarity the ride directions are all based on Chestnut Square (The Stag's Head) as a start and finish point.
