Start & Finish: Frenchay, Bristol | Entry: £6.50
Remember your granny, you are going to need it! An outing into the Cotswolds; big hills, little hills and more hills with chocolate box villages interspersed.
An end of season Imperial Century Grimpeur showcasing the Cotswolds. Starting from Gary Harris Cycles north of 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. Turn and climb up again into the Cotswolds to Northleach; here a BBQ awaits in aid of the local swimming club. Then cruise (well almost) through picturesque countryside and villages 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.
