A Firmly Stout Canine

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

A day out for just 1*. A new twist on a winter favourite. No need to worry about the january cold, more the summer conditions of mid August.* surcharge for paypal-blame it on their fees. And doubled admin.

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. Instant validation available for this event. I don't know how so much cycling entertainment can be crammed-into one ride for only a pound. 1.5 AAA at no extra cost.
