Start/Finish: Worcester Racecourse
The 12th edition of the Tour of Worcester sees major changes to the route after the problems due to the floods in 2019.
We still plan to follow parts of the old Tour of Britain route as usual incorporating the tough climbs from all those years ago.
Our feed stop for both routes will again be at Martley Village Hall offering our usual energy products from CLIBAR and NUUN drinks and some fruit and savouries to help replenish everyone’s tastes.
We plan to again name the climbs on both the Gallop and Canter routes, and on the Gallop the “Killer climb” of Wynniattes road remains an option.
The Gallop route then takes on a new quieter route to get back to Dunley Hill, then a re-route to avoid the ford descent and climb.
Both routes merge again at Shrawley, and after Holt Fleet climb, we detour again into the lanes to avoid the main roads, and then follow cycle route 43 thru the park and back into the racecourse and the centre pavilion, for a small replenishing snack.
May we thank all riders on our 2019 ride for their patience with all the last-minute route and HQ changes.
