Route information
The Uk Cycling Events' Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With three routes to choose from and nothing too technical, this is a perfect event for both experienced riders and anyone new to the sport. So anyone can embrace this challenge through wonderful countryside.
All routes will take you through the Cotswolds AONB known for grassland harbour thatched medieval villages, churches and stately homes built of distinctive local yellow limestone, and not to mention its rolling hills. All of the Cotswold Classic routes have some rather punchy climbs and fast descents along the way.
After a tough but stunning day out on the road, you will be well rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line. Everyone will of course receive their finisher's medal, but also you will receive beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from other event partners.
So sign up for a wonderful, professionally run cycling experience with a friendly atmosphere.

More photographs along the way might have been nice (think there was only the one?) also more of a bar / food / chill out area for people watching and to soak up atmosphere at the end, seemed a bit flat but was enjoyable. Definitely be back next year!

It would have been great to camp at the site but we didn’t realise this was an option until we arrived. Maybe more advertising of this in future. Great event though thank you 👍🏼

I think you could have had more at the end of course in terms of food etc. Course was a bit too hilly and being local, a larger route into the cotswolds would have been better as it felt like doubling back just to hit mileage and climbs. Missed some of the nice views
