About the venue
Set in 2,400 acres of beautiful countryside, the Grafham Water 10-mile cycle path caters for all abilities, from gentle tarmac paths for the young to challenging terrains for the daring. The Rutland Cycling shop offers sale or hire of a wide range of quality bikes and a number of our riders used their cycles for the day. They offered a generous discount to riders supporting the Red Cross appeal – Thank you Rutland Cycling!!
