Cycling to work
took a day off on friday and had a quick cycle to Warwick from Newbold–on–Stour. Took about an hour to do, though 20 minutes of that was tackling Loxley hill right at the start (or end when coming back).
I figure about 40 minutes to do Warwick to UoW – can anyone confirm this?
Really though, apart from the hill at the start/end it felt pretty do–able – back roads for most of the way and few tricky bits. Just that climb over Loxley, which as fitness improves should get easier.
Now, if I can just convince Steph….

40 mins. should get you from Warwick to the uni with time to spare.
Alternatively, you could come in via Wellesbourne, Bishops Tachbrook, and Leamington – looks like it might be a bit more direct than Warwick, and avoids the busy roads from the M40 into Warwick town centre.
That hill into Loxley is a sod. Almost worth taking the main road into Wellesbourne to avoid it :–)

The route in my head is:
newbold – alderminster – loxley – charlecote – barford – warwick – stoneleigh – gibbet hill
when you look at it on the map it seems to be as straight a route as you can get.
climbing to loxely from Alderminster is a pig – first the climb out of alderminster, then up to loxley and you can't even bomb it down the other side thanks to the bends in the road and junction at the bottom of the hill – bummer!
At least the run from loxely to alderminster lets you get some speed up!
