(Unicursal and Route Problems)
Two friends were spending their bank holiday on a cycling trip. Stopping

They started from the town in the top left-hand corner marked A. It will

different routes by which they may reach their destination, always
travelling either due south or due east. The puzzle is to discover which
town is their destination.
Of course, if you find that there are more than 1,365 different routes
to a town it cannot be the right one.
