Mr. Pickwick's January Sale

201km cycling event starting from Tewkesbury. Controls at Chaddesley Corbett, Warwick Services (South). and Chipping Norton, plus 3 information controls.

Spend a day at the sales, whilst out on your bike. Route specificly chosen for potential winter conditions. Hot & cold food/drink available at all controls, just in case the day's a bit on the chilly side.

The first stage heads north from Tewkesbury along Worcestershire lanes for a breakfast stop at Rowberry's Nursery. Then quiet rural roads through 'Shakespear's County' and lunch at M40 services (Warwick South). The rest of the ride is spent in the Cotswolds with an afternoon stop at The Old Mill Cafe in Chipping Norton. after a few more undulations the final part of enjoying The Cotswolds is descending Soudley hill to Winchcombe - The ancient capital of Mercia. The final dozen kilometers are a gentle traverse across The Severn Vale back to Tha Royal Hop Pole in Tewkesbury, where Mr. Pickwick drank too much ale. Istant validation available for this event, so no need for brevet return SAE, if you use GPS - route/track files supplied. Routesheet also supplied electronicly (MS Xls) - so no need for route-return SAE. Or go completely electronic and use Paypal. I don't know how so much cycling entertainment can be crammed-into one ride for only a pound.
