09 September 2017Successful Tour of Britain Heritage Ride

The GBBB Tour of Britain Heritage ride 2017 was a success thanks to our superb guests. Starting at Moreton Fire College 55 riders made their way to Moreton-in-Marsh where we were met by an enthusiastic crowd who come to see us off. A few words of encouragenment from Councillor Kit Havelock-Davies abd the riders set off along a scenic route passing through Evenlode and Broadwell towards the half way station at Stow-on-the-Wold.

Spending an hour in the delightful town of Stow-on-the-Wold refueling with energy drinks (Beer) riders were led by the Town Mayor Cllr Ben Eddolls who looked the part in his Top Hat. We then made our way through the delightful villages of Lower Swell and Lower Slaughter to our final destination at Bourton-on-the-Water, where riders enjoyed the refreshment of a traditional British Tea and of course Beer kindly provided by Cotswold Brewery.

Everyone rested and refuelled in time more the main event, the Tour of Britain as we saw professional riders sprinting along the High Street of Bourton-on-the-Water

Love is in the Air, there is nothing more romantic than sharing a special bike ride with the one you love as witnessed on this years heritage ride. 

However it wasn't all love as we did see a few demonstartions for womens rights. All in good humour though.

Thank you to everyone that came and the great feedback we received thanking GBBB. I would like to say it wouldn't have been possible by my help from the Tyndale Cycling Club, my wife Shirley, Town Councils of MIM, SOW and BOW not forgetting the tireless help of Sally Graff from Cotswold Tourism.
