Summary: MARKET HARBOROUGH > MELTON MOWBRAY > OAKHAM > MEDBOURNE > MARKET HARBOROUGH
Route Description:

TOTAL DISTANCE: 55 MILES (APPROX)
TIME TAKEN: ALLOW AT LEAST TWO HOURS TO SAVOUR

There are three real standout parts to this route. The B6047 from Market Harborough through to the famous ‘pork pie town’ of Melton Mowbray is a roller coaster ride of blind dips, crests and rises — so err on the side of caution and take your time to learn it. The return leg down the A606 towards Oakham is mostly made up of fast sweeping corners through stunning scenery all the way towards Rutland Water.

If you fancy a quick breather, then stop at any one of the many car parks around this man-made lake to take in the idyllic views or enjoy a steady ride down to nearby Upper Hambleton and grab a bite to eat in the excellent Finch’s Arms. The final leg of the ride takes you down the B664 for a superb finale to this cracking loop. This quiet, undulating road winds up and down as it twists and turns its way back into Market Harborough.
