Mr Pickwick's January Sale
Spend a day at the sales, whilst out on your bike. A 201k ride which heads North from Tewkesbury along Worcestershire lanes, then quiet rural roads through 'Shakespear's County'. The rest of the ride is spent in the Cotswolds with an afternoon stop in Chipping Norton. After a few more undulations the final part of enjoying the Cotswolds is descending Soudley Hill to Winchcombe - the ancient capital of Mercia. The final dozen kilometers are a gentle traverse across The Severn Vale back to Tewkesbury.
