Description
  • Use this route alone or as a continuation of ride W12.  Search for ride W12 for further details.
  • If using this route alone and not as a continuation of W12, start on the Hudson Way at the Gardham-Etton Road bisect of the trail.  If approaching the start from Gardham, turn right when the road bisects the rail trail.  However, if approaching the start from Etton, turn left at the bisection of the road onto the Hudson Way. 
  • ** The following information continues from ride W12**
  • Travel on the rail trail in an easterly direction towards Leconfield.  Continue for 1½ miles after the Gardham-Etton Road.  At a large brick bridge, exit right and travel up to the road.  To your left you will see an old windmill.  Turn left over the bridge and turn down the next lane on your right (GR.982429). 
  • At the B1248 (GR.992430), cross straight over and follow the excellent verges to the T-junction.  Turn left and follow this lane to the outskirts of Leconfield.  Ride on until you come to a T-junction (GR.010439) and then turn right down a street of modern houses and bungalows.  Follow this road until you reach the A164.  There may be lots of traffic here, so cross the road with care. 
  • Turn right, use the cycle lane for 200 yards and then take the left turn (signposted Arram).  Continue riding along this road and out of the village, passing St Catherine's Church, which was founded in the 7th century.  You will now come onto a lane with a tarmac surface, concrete edges, flat verges and well-kept hedges which prescribes a 180 degree arc to the right, over 1 mile around the perimeter of the old RAF station built in the mid-1930s. 
  • At Arram station, go directly across the railway lines and continue into Arram village.  As the road peters out at the end of the village (GR.043441), turn right and follow the bridleway to Arram Grange.  Just past the farm turn left and ride on over an old brick bridge which crosses Barmston Drain.  Turn immediately right (GR.051435) with the drain on your right and ride 1½ miles to Tickton.  Go through the gate and under the A1035 flyover to end your ride at Tickton village (GR.055417).
