A complete lap around the Severn Estuary through some glorious scenery. You get a bit of everything on this ride….. rivers, bridges, forests, nice cafes and an ancient abbey too!
We head north on quiet lanes, descending Frocester Hill on our way and then skirt around the edge of Gloucester for our morning coffee stop. We’ll then head along the lovely Severn vale before crossing the river and riding into the Forest of Dean for some lovely riding under the trees and along to our lunchtime stop at the Dean Heritage Centre cafe.
After refuelling we continue through the Forest for a steady climb up to St. Briavels where we descend all the way down (with care) to cross the River Wye and afternoon tea by Tintern Abbey. One final, steady climb up the Anghidi river valley and then we point our bikes towards the Severn Bridge for the second crossing of the river and a gentle ride back home.
Please note that attendance of this ride requires advanced booking. Please use this simple booking form.
The form is a mandatory for all riders, so the organiser knows who and how many to expect and so we have a record of everyone riding on the day. Your cooperation to complete this in advance of the ride will be much appreciated.
