Hi there, why not join us for a short but scenic ride around the Cotswolds and Slimbridge. Dust off your thermals, and enjoy a blast of cold Winter air on a Sunday ride.
Starting at Sainsbury’s, Emerson Green. (Fuel available) The ride will head to the A46 at the crest of Tog Hill. From there we will travel across country through Old Sodbury, Tetbury and on to Dursley. It’s then a short ride through Cam and we stop for Brunch at “The Black Shed” in Slimbridge. If you fancy something stronger, there is always the Tudor Arms public house adjacent to the café. The Slimbridge Wild Fowl Trust is a short ride over the Gloucester and Sharpness canal for those who fancy taking a quick look. Alternatively, there is option of a walk along the tow path.
Following the break, the return trip will take us back down the A38 Gloucester Rd, through Tytherington, Cromhall and Chipping Sodbury. Leaving the town, we head up the Cross Hands at Old Sodbury. We will then turn onto the A46, and head for the finish point at the Compass Inn, Tormarton, mid afternoon. (Time for a pint.)
