A 209km cycling event starting Oadby Youth Centre, Wigston Rd, Oadby, with controls at Bottesford, Edith Weston and Brixworth. Information controls at Knossington and Sibbertoft. Uses commercial controls throughout.

The route leaves Leicester to follow the Wreake Valley into the Vale of Belvoir to Bottesford with views of Belvoir castle. The route then heads south past the eastern end of Rutland water and on to Knossington. The route then heads south past Launde Abbey, Medbourne and on to the southernmost point at Brixworth. The route back north passes through Naseby and Saddington before returning to Leicester.
There are also opportunities to stop for refreshment along the way at Wymondham Windmill tea rooms, Empingham and Medbourne.

This year, our Easter Arrow went up the west side of Rutland Water, Windmill Cafe, Belvoir, Bottesford.  Nice part of the country to ride in, but day before the 200 I'm running down here.

would like to ECE this back to London (assuming the virus does not intervene), and wondered if anyone knew of a nice route back, not too busy. Would appreciate it, thanks

I think ECE are currently cancelled, but it's"a very fluid situation" as they say.

Just sent out an email explaining the suspension of all Audaxes.
I will try to rearrange this event in September if possible.
