John & Audrey's Cotswolds Ride - Sunday 25th August

Post by John Tipper » Wed Aug 07, 2019 1:13 pm

Our ride to the Cotswolds is fast approaching so our apologies for this relatively late announcement. We always recce our routes before hand but this year we discovered yet another another road closure. However, the route has been amended; Excel and .gpx files are now available.

As usual we’ll run two groups; John will lead the Full members and Audrey will lead Full Members and Associates. Our route from Birchanger to Stow and back, not including your ride to and from home, is 225 miles and includes some demanding roads. Please be realistic, ensure you are comfortable with this mileage before joining us.

We’ll meet at Birchanger Services, Jcn. M11 / A120 (by Starbucks) with full tanks in time for a 9 am briefing.

Our first ‘coffee’ stop will be at Buckingham Garden Centre, 63 miles from the start. Lunch is at 125 miles at the Cotswold Café on the A424, Stow to Broadway. For those who’d like to consider a shorter route, you could return home from Buckingham by following our return route that passes the Buckingham Garden Centre reducing your mileage to 126.

If you'd like copies of the route, .gpx and .xlsx (Excel) please email me at and I'll send them to you.

We can’t think of a better way to spend a sunny Sunday but bring the wet suit just in case!

John and Audrey
