Granny's Cotswolds Telegram

160km cycling event starting from Frenchay, Bristol. Controls at Brimscombe and Northleach, plus 2 information controls.

Remember your granny, you are going to need it! An outing into the Cotswolds; big hills, little hills and more hills with chocolate box villages interspersed. You may use my name in vain. AAA being calculated.

Welcome to this inaugraul end of season Imperial Century Grimpeur showcasing the Cotswolds. Starting from Bristol Cycle Centre north of Bristol you'll make a beeline to Wootton-under-Edge where the fun begins! Dropping down into old mill towns and climbing back out again you make your way north to Cheltenham. Turn and climb up again into the Cotswolds to Northleach and cruise (well almost) through picturesque countryside and villages before entering the valleys and mill towns again for a visit to Dursley Heritage Centre. Hold onto your hats and engage low gear for the final steep one before a quick return. To utilise the hills fully a few busier roads have been used in places but there is a good selection of beautiful lanes too. Parking is available from 06:30 at the start free of charge and the gates will reamin open till 21:00. The finish is a short distance away at a pub and will be serving food all afternoon.
