Below we wrote “Join us for RideIt! Cotswolds and soak up charming country lanes” what we should have said was ” get SOAKED on country lanes!!” What a wet weekend that was, possibly the worst in Ride It history. Still, great to see so many riders turn up and kudos to those that entered on the day, opening the curtains and thinking ” yeah, I want to go cycling in that” takes some motivation! Both days had their challenges, the MTB riders had to deal with wet mud and the Roadies, some strong wind, there were a lot of knackered riders stumbling over that timing mat :-)

Rider times are available from the link at the bottom of the page.

Here’s a few pics from Saturday that kind of show the weather at the start and the conditions at the finish:-

Last Minute Updates

Mike and I have been out in the sunshine today putting up the road route, it was all very pleasent, quiet rolling roads and lovely scenery.  For most of the ride I hardly saw any cars and the roads seem to be in pretty good condition.  There is a possibility of a slight alteration to the route due to a closed road but we’ll check this Sunday morning and any alterations will be clearly signed.
