I’m considering reviewing a suggested route which I know mainly uses paths and winding country roads. I also know there are pavements alongside the main roads from A to B, a route, maybe 30% shorter in length. The former is the more idyllic, the latter more practical. I get that in a perfect world there would be a bucolic footpath running alongside the shorter route and that’s clearly what I would be surveying if available. But in this instance, with a binary choice between long, pretty & impractical or shorter, dull but useful, which fits with the Slow Ways philosophy?
