This is a 25 mile route in the Cotswolds that starts near Nailsworth (and finishes there if you’re lucky). After an easy ride down a bike track the route rises up onto Rodborough common where there’s some interesting lines in the bomb holes. It then works along the cotswold edge until it reaches the Uley hill fort where a great bridleway descent takes you into Gary Palmer territory.
There’s a very nice pub at the bottom of the best descent. We might do that descent twice because it’s so good.
The last part takes in Minchinhampton common with some easy jumps and two sets of cheeky steps (optional). Steps video.
A few photos from the recce ride are in the gallery below.
Meet at the Woodchester layby on the Stroud – Nailsworth road. Google streetview link.
