Join us on 6th May 2017 for the Ride Scorpion cycle with a choice of 2 circular routes.

This is a cycle ride to suit everyone! Whether it’s taking on the challenging hills of the 66 mile route or stretching yourself on the 20 miler, this is an opportunity to get a team together and enjoy a Saturday in the saddle.

IMG_0711The 66 mile route offers stunning views of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire and challenges you with steep hills and windy roads. The 20 mile route gives you the chance to see beautiful villages and appreciate the wonderful countryside, with less hills to contend with.

Both circular rides start and finish at The Howard Arms in the beautiful village of Ilmington, Warwickshire (CV36 4LT).  There will be a welcome reception to celebrate your achievement at the finish line.Howard-Arms-580_15292a
