SALINAE AND COTSWOLDS

Description

212km cycling event starting from Droitwich Spa. Controls at Tewkesbury, Witney, Shipston-On-Stour and Droitwich Spa Rotary House.., plus 2 information controls.

An autumn audax to the Cotswolds from briney Droitwich. A great way to see the Cotswolds in their for autumnal glory. Flattish start and finish with a hilly middle.

This started off as an x-rated event during lockdown but was so popular, it is now back as a proper full event with a hall finish and hopefully a cafe start. There should be more riders too! In mid_November, there will be fewer tourists cluttering the lanes of the Cotswolds, so enjoy the peace. The first section is an easy trundle to Tewkesbury before swinging into the Cotswolds via the assault up Suddeley Bank. After which is ups and downs via Witney. The return section from Shipston is not too challenging.

There are plenty of cafe stop opportunities on route.

E Brevet available for proof of passage.
