Slaughtered in the Cotswolds

Description

201km cycling event starting from Iron Acton, Bristol. Controls at Brimscombe, Toddington, Illmington, Northleach and White Hart Inn, Iron Acton., plus 1 information control.

An outing into the Cotswolds; big hills, little hills and more hills with chocolate box villages interspersed leading you to The Slaughters. You may use my name in vain.

Interactive map available through web link. ============================================================ A 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. Keep going to the quintessential Broadway and climb up again into the Cotswolds turing at Illmington to cruise (well almost) through picturesque countryside and villages including the chocolate box Lower Slaughter and on to Northleach; here a BBQ awaits in aid of the local swimming club. A 'relaxing' stretch follows 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.
