I could be out of date as it's 12-13 years since I lived round Nottingham but if your by the university hospital your almost in the centre Edwards and woodbrough road would be my way in but that's no where like 10miles

Whichever route you choose there'll be a few hills. Perhaps Bestwood (assuming near the police station)-Arnold-Mapperley-Gedling-Netherfield-Sneinton is the way forwards. I can personally vouch for the bit between Gedling to the city being about 5 miles and is flat. The stretch up through Arnold to Mapperley will have short, sharp climbs regardless of whether you choose Breck Hill Road or Gedling Road. Another slightly longer option is to head through Arnold towards Calverton then coming back along Mapperley Plains and down Woodborough Road.
The only disability in life is a poor attitude.
