Mr. Pickwick Takes Flight

208km cycling event starting from Bushley, Nr Tewkesbury. Controls at Wellesbourne Airfield cafe., Turweston Airfield Cafe. and Chipping Norton., plus 3 information controls.

The ride's name is derived from places and landmarks it visits and pass nearby A benign summer 200, suitable for those thinking of stepping-up in distance. Good controls throughout, route on quiet roads and lanes.
