Autumn South Salopian

207km cycling event starting from Belbroughton, Worcestershire. Controls at TENBURY, BISHOP'S CASTLE and IRONBRIDGE, plus 4 information controls.

Autumn in lovely South Shropshire with a bit Worcestershire and Herefordshire chucked in for good measure. Come and ride through the autumn colours and enjoy food back at Belbroughton HQ. Plenty of cafes en-route

Soak in the autumnal colours of the Teme Valley before making a dash towards border lands of The Marches. Twee Bishops Castle is the halfway point furnished with cafes selling plenty of cake. The route becomes truly picturesque as you take the sneaky way over the Long Mynd before a dash down the descending Roman Road leading to the Severn. Ironbridge is well known for... well, it's iron bridge and yet more cafe stops and quirky buildings. The final section heads south east via the pastoral landscape to Belbroughton. Overall, the route is gently undulating with the exception of a bump just before Bishops Castle and the passage over far northern end of The Long Mynd. En-route there are three 'free' controls and two information controls. Don't leave it too late to enter as Beacon Audaxes are usually over-subscribed.
