100 Mile Ride to Cotswolds

A Smiling Cyclist outside Stow on the Wold.

Sunday, I cycled 101 miles to Broadway in the Cotswolds. I rode 50 miles into quite a strong wind then turned back. Ironically, Sunday was the same day as the National 100 mile Time trail championship, I nearly entered. I took this as a tourist ride stopping to take a few photos. The Cotswolds, could be described as rolling countryside. There aren’t many major climbs to speak of, but, it rarely feels flat.

I can’t believe how much I ate in the 6 hour ride. There was a very nice bakery in Moreton on the Marsh, when I got some bread and an almond croissant.

In Broadway, there is a long climb out of Broadway up to Broadway Tower. It is about 3 miles long

Moreton in the Marsh had a fete.  A few cyclists take advantage of the car free roads.

    I am looking for a good photo of the Cotswolds (ideally Broadway) to use in our annual printed brochure which we are publishing later this month. Would you have anything that we could use, we just need one for the page which covers the Birmingham to Cheltenham ride.
    Many thanks
