The cycle routes will take place around The Cotswolds and rural Wiltshire. The cycle course should not be underestimated as there are some challenging climbs on the 75km route. For an easier option or to be more favourable to beginners, then you should choose the shorter route. A feed station will be positioned between the two major peaks on the route.
