Gary Palmer leads this epic ride in the Stroud area. This will be a big day in the saddle, with a beauty of a climb at the end.
There will be at least one pub stop and maybe a cafe stop later on, if it’s still open!
There will be some great single track, and some big (road) climbs. If the weather is poor we can shorten the ride – we’ll just go with the flow. The pace will be steady, but please consider the 39 mile distance before committing to this ride.
We will be starting at the Shortwood carpark, near Haresfield beacon, nearest post code for car park is GL6 6PP.
