Audax – Cirencester – Heart of England @ Cirencester

An undulating ride through the rural heart of England. Few big hills after the Cotswolds. Hardly a main road in sight. Good caf? controls. Basic accommodation available in the hall on Friday and Saturday night.

Cleeve Hill XC (blue) ** update ** @ Costcutter car park
Apr 26 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

****update ****

Route is 30 miles and is XC but with road to get to/from the hills. 

For those not travelling to FoD on Saturday, I’m planning a bit of a mission taking in much of the first half of this years HoNC.

Starting from the car park behind cost cutter near my house, riding out to gretton before climbing up, over the hill (gypsy lane), and on up to Cleeve hill.

I am yet to map out the route to get the distance, but this ride will be suitable for all.  This ride is graded BLUE.

Usual weather caveat applies!

Mini Endureo Race Series – Forest of Dean @ Forest of Dean
Apr 27 all-day
road event – Harvey 100k Star Cycle Challenge @ Nation Star College
Apr 27 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Hi all,

I spoke to Nina today who is organising the event and she reiterated that it is fine for people to pay registration only.  They are expecting to have people do this as they appreciate it is difficult for people to fund raise.  So if this could be highlighted too on our website that would be good.



100km – Sunday 27th April 2014

Start 8am – 10am

Join us, and Dr Dawn Harper from Embarrassing Bodies, for a fantastic new 100km cycle ride through beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. By supporting National Star, you will help young people with complex disabilities develop the skills they need to live life more independently.

This is a cycle ride for the whole family! The last Harvey 100 had participants aged between 12 and 75 and we hope that this year we will see the same! The route will pass through Cowley, Brimpsfield, Bisley, Kemble, South Cerney, Quenington and Withington.

£20 registration fee (in advance)

Suggested minimum sponsorship £80 per person
