This ride offers lots of grassy tracks with few hard surfaces and only about 150 yards of roadwork on a quiet county lane. However there are a lot of gates, some of which may require you to dismount, and you will probably encounter some livestock in fields.
The route is described anticlockwise but can be ridden in either direction.

From the A428, Bedford to Northampton Road, turn right at the village of Turvey, then right again, signposted to Carlton. Emmaus Village is signposted to the right just before you enter the village of Carlton.
