What you need to know

Theres a reason holidaymakers flock to the Cotswolds in their droves its amazingly scenic countryside makes for the perfect weekends cycling. A selection of great climbs and miles of rolling rural roads provide an ideal mix for a day in the saddle.

Soon after you set off from the venue, youll be faced with one of the first major climbing tests of the event straight away. Moving up Round Hill, make sure to catch your breath and check out the magnificent surrounding views as you crest the climb.

Once youve reached the top of this climb, its plain sailing until the next big ascent as you can concentrate on peddling away the miles and taking in the surrounding scenery at the same time. A reassuring downhill drop will open up just before passing Toddington Stanway hold onto your bars, as this is fast one.

Sure enough, as inviting descents come, uphill challenges will lie in wait as youll be out of the saddle again soon after to tackle the next hill between Snowshill and Saintbury. As soon as this is behind you, though, youll be able to power through the final few miles on a series of fast and technical country lanes leading back to Cheltenham. A finishers medal, t-shirt and well-earned PowerBar recovery product wait for you at ride HQ.
