It's shorter and flatter (according to bikeroutetoaster), but it's easy to do a couple of laps, or more if you're really keen. We can also move onto* a pub to really confuse the locals
25th April - 1pm
If you want to park in Rugby/Dunchurch or arrive by train and then follow someone down to Draycote then post here - else I'll assume I'm coming down on my tod
As most people seem to be arriving by road I'll suggest the staff car park just below the club house.
Park as normal, go up to the clubhouse (obvious, up is the clue) to pay for parking. Then go down the hill (20 yards) and look left
That'll give us a chance to spread along the long straight if we need more space initially...

The 6 car line dead centre of this map is the staff car park.
The building just southwest of it is the "pay for parking" building
The path due south goes down to the car parks (this path isn't great - too much loose surface. I did get up, but traction was an issue) there is of course the road option, round the long way
Assuming you can get on one
Rugby station is ~7 miles away, I'm happy to detour via there to collect people. Cycle from the station to* Draycote.
M6, M1, M45, A14 - Really easy!
Parking is £2 for the day (I think this is going up to £2.50 very soon), so you may want to park in Rugby, Bilton or Dunchurch and cycle over*, there will be a party moving that way to collect and guide you.
Various places above I've suggested a road or cycle route options (or just put a * in place) I haven't yet cycled that particular route, but the roads aren't bad, I hit 40mph on my ancient machine going down there by road yesterday.
I'll have scoped the route in time, in case there is anyone unhappy about riding on a national limit road.
