Ride Cotswolds Sportive
The Cotswolds will be at their immaculate best, and what better way to enjoy them than by bike, as you navigate intertwining lanes and tackle rolling hills. With three routes all barely leaving the confines of this Area of Natural Beauty, the event showcases the region like never before.
The rapid succession of climbs and descents will keep you on your toes all day, and although those in the first half are relatively tame, those in the later stages pack a significantly bigger punch. Snowshill Road is the big wake up call, and after a gentle start will have you climbing for over 8km before you reach the summit.
With the epic route heading South, the ups become bigger and so do the downs. Climbing up and through the pretty village of Rissington, this is the quintessential Cotswolds climb, and at 2.3 km long, with an average of 5%, a pretty tough one to round of a wonderful day. 103, 80 and 41 mile options.
