Route description

I mapped out an alternative to PreBla One based on AndrewH’s suggestions, then discovered (at home) that the river crossing along the A59 is completely closed for road and verge repairs until September, so I used a much earlier river crossing, and ended up creating this approximate combination of PreBam Two and what is soon to be a new variation of BamBla. But it is barely any longer than PreBla One.
