This classic cycling event is always popular due to its setting in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area, known for its thatched medieval villages, stately homes and rolling hills, offers some exquisite scenery for riders to enjoy. The three routes contain some more challenging climbs, but have plenty of fast, downhill sections to give your legs a rest.
All routes start from Stratford-upon-Avon and head out into the surrounding countryside. The Long Route heads as far as Winchcombe, not far from Cheltenham, before looping back through Teddington and Honeybourne. The Middle Route takes riders through Chipping Camden, diverging from the Long Route at Snowshill to return back to Stratford-upon-Avon. The Short Route is a more compact loop taking in Clifford Chambers, Long Marston, Ebrington and Bidford-upon-Avon.
Difficulty
This event has a difficulty rating of 3/5, as it has an undulating set of routes that clock up plenty of vertical ascent. However, there'll be several fast descents and flatter bursts through the valleys.
