Event Information

DESCRIPTION:

A fast route using more country lanes for the BST version. Cotswolds towns and villages galore in their picturesque beauty. One major climb up out of Wootton under Edge. Lunch by a lake in the Thames Water Park.

DETAILS:

Staggered start times will be used and you’ll set off in groups of six. As such I’ve allowed bookings for up to 6 entrants so if you want to start with friends please include them in the one booking to make my life easier. Whether solo or a group please indicate your estimated average MOVING speed and your control faff level. This will aid me in forming the starting groups and their start time; the faster movers will set off first.

Please try to stay in your group. If you split up do not form a group with any other riders.

The route is using free controls except for a cafe in the Cotswolds Water Park who will have a quick serve meal available.

I am looking at the possibility of using alternative proof of passage so you don’t have to stop to get receipts or answer infos. I’m trying an app available for both Android & Apple that you can log in when in the correct location; I’ll update you in later correspondence.

START/FINISH:

Please only arrive a short time before your start time and when you do remain socially distanced.

Tea & Coffee available from Gary Harris Cycles. Toilet facilities at the golf centre will be limited by one person in the building at a time so please go before you arrive.

Parking available at start. Gate opens at 06:30 and will close at 19:00; if you think you’ll be back later please use on street parking in Frenchay village about 5mins away (factor in a staggered start).
