The 13th 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 along with prepacked items to meet the Covid regulations.
We plan to number the climbs on both routes with a on board bike sticker to let you know where and when. The Gallop route will have the “Killer Climb” which 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.
Registration from 4pm to 6pm on Saturday and from 7.15 am both at the Centre Pavilion.
Tea and coffee available.
Toilets on site.
Free car parking at Worcester racecourse adjacent to the Pavilion.
