This is a very easy six-mile ride through the market gardens of Worcestershire, famous for their produce.
Leave Evesham on the old Badsey Lane. This crosses the A46 bypass on the level - take care. There is a special refuge for cyclists between the two lanes. Continue into the attractive village of Badsey, then head south.
As you head towards Broadway, a signposted bridleway will take you north. This has a good gravel surface. Road cyclists - if you have thin tyres, you may prefer to divert on the B road via Bretforton. The approach to Honeybourne passes the historic Thatched Tavern.
Evesham station is just north of the town centre on the main road.
Honeybourne station is a short way north of the main village crossroads.
This section is also part of the proposed Sustrans route from Evesham to Stratford-on-Avon. You can actually continue on minor roads to the 'Stratford Greenway' at Long Marston, a very popular traffic-free trail on the old railway.
