Jo Page will be leading this MB Swindon Ladies only, novice friendly, ride.
The ride will skirt the side trails of the Malvern Hills and be largely non-technical. It is impossible to put together a completely flat route in Malvern, however, the route will be designed to minimise steep climbing as far as possible and try and take the easier gradients up, and down. There is a planned cafe/toilet stop around halfway, plus we will pass another toilet block twice on route so plenty of chances for use of facilities. The ride will not be massive in terms of distance (around 10-12 miles) but it is likely to last a good part of the day (to make sure that the pace is steady enough for everyone who may turn up). So allow 5 hours for riding and stops.
There are toilet facilities just 30 seconds walk from the carpark, a little cafe, and a hotel with a bar for coffee if you get there early. If the car park is full, there is a further car park along the B4232 (road junction opposite the British Camp Car Park).
