Leicester to Syston

9 miles (15 km)

This short easy ride follows National Cycle route 6 from Leicester to Syston along the River Soar. The route starts by the tourist information centre in Leicester and soon joins the river for some pleasant waterside riding.
Just before Birstall you will pass through the lovely Watermead Country Park with over 12 lakes and ponds. From here you turn east crossing the River Wreake before heading towards Syston and finishing at the train station.
