Granny's Cotswolds Telegram
165km cycling event starting from Iron Acton, Bristol. Controls at Brimscombe, Toddington and Northleach, plus 1 information control. Remember your granny, you are going to need it! An outing into the Cotswolds; big hills, little hills and more #wills_hills with chocolate box villages interspersed. You may use my name in vain
Interactive map available through corresponding event in web link. ============================================================ An Imperial Century Grimpeur showcasing the Cotswolds. Starting from Iron Acton, North 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 and beyond stopping at The Flag and Whistle on the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire Steam Railway. Turn and climb up again into the Cotswolds to Northleach; here a BBQ awaits in aid of the local swimming club. Then 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 and some pub grub. ================================================================ Parking available, please use the local roads before filling the pub car park.
