Tour of Cotswolds - 19 July 2015

The Tour of Cotswolds Sportive was held over 2 beautiful rides through the heart of England & Wales' largest area of outstanding natural beauty.


The sportive started from Shipston on Stour and riders completed their choice of either 76 mile or 52 mile events


The rides took beautiful Cotswold villages, rolling countryside lanes and some challenging climbs on the way - the 76 mile ride takes in the climbs of Blockley, Stanway, Campden Lane and, home to the 2010 National Hill Climb Championship, Dover's Hill. The 52 mile route took in all the same climbs bar Stanway and Campden Lane.


Apologies to those who took a wrong turn in Lower Slaughter - some very helpful people decided it would be appropriate to take down and turn from view the signs put out there.  Thanks to the riders who reported it at the feed and we managed to get them back up (in abundance) prior to the majority of you coming through


Apologies also for the slight delay in getting the 2 links above up - we grabbed a few days away in a tent in a wood with no WiFi to be found whatsoever!


Some thank you's . . . . . Total Fitness Bath (Andy) for the Mechanic / Broom Wagon support; Medi Bike for the paramedic cover and Brian, Mary and team at Shipston on Stour RUFC for being such great hosts again but mainly


....... YOU, the riders - without you there is no ride and no point - Hope you enjoyed your day & we look forward to welcoming you back next year . . . . . .
