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.
