Note: If don’t have the energy to bike there and back bring your bike to the Brocket at 10-10.15 on the morning and transport will be available for your bike BUT you must sort YOUR own lift out to the Golden Lion   

Distance –  about 16 miles (but at least most of it is flat, very scenic and off road)
