Steve Poulton of Cheltenham CTC is organising 3 Audax events, which will no doubt be of interest to some club members. He says:
On behalf of Cheltenham CTC, I am organising 3 Audax events, 200km, 150km, 100km, which will suit all Club riders:
The 200 over Gospel Pass is a full day out with 3000m of climbing. The 150 takes a similar route through the FoD to Monmouth and Pandy, but routes via Kerne Bridge to climb Yat Rock, to return via Grosmont and the Marcle Ridge. The 100 is a glorious passage through the FoD to Speech House and (descent of) Yat Rock, then cross-country to Hoarwithy Bridge for a return over Marcle Ridge. These are well-proven routes into superb countryside and mostly quiet roads, especially the return after Hoarwithy Bridge (all routes). You approach Gospel Pass from the South to enjoy the wonderful descent into Hay. Brief details and maps are on Local Bike Shop Notice Boards.
