Distances: 101, 161 km
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

A ride of contrasting terrain with rolling terrain to suit the rouleurs at the start of the ride followed by some challenging climbs on the long route to suit the grimpeurs as we return via the Cotswold Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Heading out east from the start at Didmarton you’ll pass through picturesque Cotswolds villages on quiet country lanes looping past the edge of Cotswold Water Park before we turn back and start to head for the hills. The 100km route returns back to the finish before reaching the bigger climbs but for riders on the 100 mile route there’s plenty of challenge towards the end of the ride including a 3km climb out of Wotton-Under-Edge followed by the shorter but steeper Stouts Hill often used for local cycling club hill climb events.
