Get To The Rec - Saturday 4th June 2016
Get to the Rec! is a great fun charity sportive, covering 100 miles between Worcester and Bath in a great part of the country! We are raising money for Acorns, a fantastic charity providing care and support for children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families.
The Cotswolds’ is the perfect place to cycle through – it has amazingly scenic countryside and picturesque villages make for the perfect setting for a weekend’s cycling in this stunning sportive. True testing climbs are matched by miles of rolling rural roads in a perfect mix for a day’s riding.
Soon after you set off from Worcester Rugby Club, you’ll be eased into the event with winding roads through Pershore and Evesham before entering the more undulating Cotswolds. You will be faced with one of the major climbing tests of the event, Dover’s Hill, as you enter the Cotswolds.
As you cycle further south there a couple more climbs with a quick descent into Stow-on-the-Wold. The route shouldn’t trouble seasoned riders, but the odd ascent here and there could catch you out. Make sure to catch your breath and check out the magnificent surrounding views as you crest the climb.
It’s plain sailing until the next big ascent as you can concentrate on whiling away the miles and taking in the surrounding scenery at the same time. Sure enough, as inviting descents come, uphill challenges will lie in wait as you’ll be out of the saddle again soon after to tackle Lansdown Hill before descending into Bath.
