Windrush Winter Warm Down 150

155km cycling event starting from Ashton Keynes, Cirencester. Controls at HAILES ABBEY, SHERBORNE and STANTON HARCOURT, plus 1 information control.

A slighly harder version of the 'Warm-up'. Start by going north over the escarpment to Winchcomb. Climb back onto the Cotswolds and follow the Windrush to the Thames.

2019 Route Sheet and GPS files uploaded 09Jan. Please check here a few days before the event for any late changes. SNOW and ICE! There's been a significant snowfall here in the last 14 hrs. There will very probably be snow and ice on the minor roads on Sunday. I'll still be at the start for anyone who wants to ride but I'm not expecting many. I plan to check conditions on Saturday and update this message. Peter 14:00 Friday 1st Feb Well I've been out. It's not good in places. Some short patches of packed snow on the road to the start. I've spoken to the cafe at Hailes Abbey. The road from Winchcombe's ok but the climb afterwards was described as awful. It's up to you! Peter 16:00 2Feb2019
