Ride the Route

Date: 13th September 2009

Welcome to the 3rd Ride the Route based on all the best bits of the Tour of Britain routes through the County of Worcestershire in 2007 and 2008. Supported by Worcestershire's Choose how you move scheme. This year the organisers have added to the tests the Pros will have to endure with their own route the Tour wouldn't go up. The new route will add several new climbs and one "killer option" that's suggested you try if you have good walking shoes.

Start and finish this year is again at Worcester Racecourse with an easy run out of the City and cycle route finish avoiding all the traffic.
There will also be an almost traffic free family ride around the city, ideal for children of all ages

This year the Malvern climbs and of course Ankerdine are on the agenda again, but also Stanford Bank and a trip out to Tenbury Wells with another 6 climbs before riders get to the "killer option-Wynniattes Way" Abberley, followed by 5 more before returning to Worcester.
There will be 2 FEED points and DRINKS at 38m, 66m and 73 miles again offering HIGH5 products, fruit and cakes.

Entries are available on line only at 25GBP for the 92 mile Challenge and the Free Family ride both by downloadable entry form and on line.
We are supporting the Geoff Thomas Foundation in 2009 and appreciate your contribution of 2GBP from your entry fee

The HQ will be the centre of the Racecourse and parking is free and plentiful with refreshments at the end of the ride.
There will be a full photography service to record your efforts and timing will be available for those who wish to know how long it took to hurt their legs.

The event sponsors are supplying a very generous goody bag again this year worth over 15GBP and as entries are limited to the 500 an early entry is suggested. Wheelsinwheelscc look forward to seeing you in September.
