Sunday 17th May 09

From Toton along Trent to Sawley to Lockington up to Airport through Isley Walton past Tonge over A42 to Cloud Hill Quarry then along Cloud Trail to Trent Mersey Canal @ Weston on Trent, along canal to Shardlow and back via Sawley Trent Lock and Attenbourough

Distance = 33.4 miles
Time = 3 hrs 13 mins
Cadence = 84
Ave Speed = 10.4 mph
Top Speed = 31.5 mph
Weather = Heavy Showers 10c

Total Milage = 246

A good ride mixing road with trails and off road stuff, couple of good climbs, one off road. Off road hill from Lockington to airport was tough going as was the on road hill round the back of Tonge up to the A42, nice downhill section past Cloud Hill quarry onto the Cloud Trail (Sustrans route 6) followed Trent Mersey canal from Weston on Trent to shardlow, was quite boggy in parts, followed Trent from shardlow to attenborough then home.

Cadence is up which is pleasing and I'm definately finding the going a bit easier as the cadence increases.

I reckon the new tyres are worth at least 2 or 3 mph on the smooth.
