Sustrans has opted to bring NCN route 63 over this bridge rather than the level crossing by the station.

Rather than using the crossing here, NCN route 63 uses a short section of shared-use footway then turns up the road opposite.

Rather useless unpaved cycle track which takes you halfway to Egleton then dumps you on the (quiet) parallel road anyway.

Cyclists are advised to ride the Rutland Water circuit anti-clockwise to avoid crossing this road twice in a couple of hundred metres. (It's bizarre that they haven't yet created an off-road route.)

The end of the gravel cycle route around the west end of Rutland Water - eastwards from here it's asphalted.

East of here, the Rutland Water cycle route is paved; westwards it's gravel.

The cycle routes are paved at the east end of the lake and largely unpaved at the west end and on the Hambleton Peninsula.

'Sykes Lane', ie the dam of Rutland Water. The cycle routes are paved at this end of the lake and largely unpaved at the west end and on the Hambleton Peninsula.

Cycle cut-off avoiding mini-roundabout - not at all obvious in the other direction (eastbound).

Steep descent on the Hambleton peninsula, Rutland Water - good brakes are more important than dismounting, I think

The initially impressive Hambleton peninsula cycleway turns into a poor gravel path here

The Hambleton peninsula cycleway kinks left here as the asphalt ends

Hambleton peninsula, Rutland Water - looks good, but the asphalt ends here.

Rather useless unpaved cycle track which takes you halfway to Egleton then dumps you on the (quiet) parallel road anyway.

Unsigned link to the Rutland Water cycle loop

A lovely cycle track from Ryhall towards Stamford. Which stops dead at the county boundary, a significant way short of the 30mph limit and with no safe way to cross the road - well done Rutland, shame on Lincolshire!
