There are so many beautiful country roads around here, and whilst not entirely flat, these lend themselves wonderfully to cycling. The most obvious place perhaps for a circular route with great views would be around Rutland Water, one of Europe’s largest man-made reservoirs. Visit Rutland Cycling -(https://www.rutlandcycling.com/pages/cycle-and-climbing-hire.aspx) to rent bicycles, electric bikes and even a tandem. Ospreys have their home here and can be seen at the Lyndon Visitor Centre.

A valuable wetland habitat, It runs for 33 miles from Grantham across the lovely Vale of Belvoir through 18 locks to West Bridgford, (adjoining Nottingham), where it joins the River Trent. Many walking or cycling routes can incorporate stretches of the canal. Woolsthorpe is a great place for a short walk along the canal; for a longer walk you could follow the Grantham to Bottesford walk which includes several miles along the towpath. See the Grantham Canals website for further ideas.
