Partnership
This event is being organised in joint partnership with The Unholy Rollers. An autonomous cycling group (there is no leader or management, they are self regulating). Their aim is to pair and introduce riders and groups to encourage cycling. To find out more about The Unholy Rollers, please join their group here.

Event Course
The cycle routes will take place around The Cotswolds and rural Wiltshire. The cycle course should not be underestimated as there are some challenging climbs on the 78km route. For an easier option or to be more favourable to beginners, then you should choose the shorter route. A feed station will be positioned between the two major peaks on the 78km route.  Number & Timing Chip CollectionYou will be able to register for the event and pick up any bike numbers before your start time.
