General comfortable ride with a good mix of sweeping bends, rural villages and open A roads to increase distance as required. 2-3 hours generally.
Apart from the obvious traffic in Stratford Upon Avon (only spend 30 seconds here anyway!) the roads are pretty quiet, relatively open and not too Policey! There's a great uphill double hairpin up Edge Hill and then a series of 4 left/rights heading towards Northend. The Banbury to Southam road can get a bit dull but there are a series of 4 quick corners, 2 of them open. Be aware, this is farm country so a few tractors about and sometimes plenty of crap on the roads if they been spreading!
