The Midlands is commonly overlooked for cycling, but it boasts an array of great roads, and is supported (most importantly) by top cafes, pubs and restaurants! From our base in Stratford upon Avon, we've put together some of our favourite routes which will take us out to the Cotswolds and into the Worcestershire/Warwickshire countryside. In the evenings you'll have the opportunity to explore some of Stratford's finest pubs and restaurants and enjoy some quality chat with your group!

 

Day 1: Arrival and warm up ride (50km, 400m)

We'll be ready at the hotel to welcome you in and prepare you for the weekend ahead. In the afternoon we'll take you on a warm up ride into the countryside around Stratford upon Avon - here you'll get an appreciation for how beautiful this area really is!

 

In the evening we'll have dinner together in the town and talk over the plans for the days ahead.

Day 2: Malvern Hills (135km, 1200m)

Our route today takes us into the Worcestershire countryside and onto the Malvern Hills. We'll pass through the Vale of Evesham, famous for its fruit and vegetables, and onwards to Upton on Severn, a picturesque riverside town. After this we're into the Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. 

 

We'll return via the outskirts of Worcester and through the country lanes back to Stratford, enjoying the smooth tarmac and quiet backroads.

Day 3: Broadway and the Cotswolds (95km, 900m)

Today we head out towards the Cotswolds, the largest Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB) in England and Wales, covering an area of almost 800 square miles. It's famous for its quaint towns and villages, its literary and royal connections and its fabulous food!

 

Our route encompasses a climb up to Broadway Tower, with stunning views over the town, and the traditional Cotswolds towns of Stow on the Wold and Broadway. We'll fuel up on a pub lunch before heading back to Stratford, ready for the journey home.
