Paris-Roubaix Challenge - cobbled roads in the UK?
Last week I accidentally entered the Paris-Roubaix Challenge - a mere 90 miles of mud and cobbles next April.
So now I’m looking for cobbled roads in the UK to do a bit of training on - and to get a feel for the bumps. Anyone got any suggestions? I’m based in the Southwest, looking in the region roughly bordered by Bristol, Gloucester, Swindon, Salisbury, Shaftsbury, Radstock.
I know about some of the cobbled hills in central Bristol, the Cobble Wobble hill in Frome, Gold Hill in Shaftsbury, but ideally I’m looking for longish flattish sections of cobbles. (And I know British cobbles aren’t the same as French pave', but you’ve got to start somewhere…)
Any suggestions for cobbled roads, or maybe just rutted roads that replicate pave', much appreciated. Thanks.
