Pleasant loop, with a stop at the Farm shop in Ludlow for coffee
The section on the A595 is a very fast and smooth run. best done mid week...

A nice run if you can do it 'out of season'
This used to be part of a 80 mile circuit i did whenever I had the chance. Oxford to Chipping Norton, via minor roads. then to Banbury A361 very fast, then follow the A361 up to Southam and back on the A423.
Best section, a set of hairpins just out side southam, from memory there is 3 or 4 in a row.(Then a layby you can turn in to do them again. and again. and agian...) Followed by some long fast corners that are oopen so you can lean right over...
Did this route on the last day of my Scotland tour. was reccomened by my dad, a local, to run from Nairn to Perth. Abosoulty stunning. fast moorland sections with some nice tight hilly corners.
Main hasards tourist/busses and the wind. I was lucky the wind was not bad but there are days when you just can not stand up.
Have to say this is up there now with my fav routes a great was to miss out the A9.
