Brixworth country park-cycling

On visiting Brixworth country park we found some great cycling paths, as were not quite fit yet !! but were doing our best, we decided not to do the full 7.5 mile (12km) circuit, but just do around 6km of it. Brixworth country park also has 3 marked walking only trails, the Kestral 0.5 miles (0.8 km) takes around 15 minutes, Lapwing trail 3/4 of a mile (1.2km) takes around 30 minutes and the Skylark trail 1.25 miles (2km) and takes around 1 hour, the views over pitsford reservoir are just stunning. The cycling is good as it is mostly flat and the circuit is continuous so no jurky T junctions. Brixworth country park is great for families with picnic tables and chairs to sit on and look over the reservoir, whilst enjoying lunch or you could use one of the onsite bbq’s. There is also the willows cafe on site near the bike hire office. The willows cafe is great just for a coffee or for some of their lovely food which includes freshly made sandwiches, jacket potatoes and much more tempting cuisine. Brixworth country park also is a haven for wildlife especially the bird life. The northampton sailing club is near by and we did see some boats out on the reservoir, brrhhh far to cold for us in march !!! but looked very idyllic as they all sailed by.
