    Introducing the Circuit of the Cotswolds, a new challenge ride along the lines of the Fred Whitton / Polka Dot challenge rides - not a race but a 100 mile epic ride around the Cotswolds. Do it fast or slow, on your own or in a group, whatever you like.

    Info: for details and entry form

    Date: Sunday 26 June, start 8 to 9am

    Course: 100 mile signposted circular route / 2,200 metres climbing

    Venue: Start/finish Yarnton Village Hall near Oxford

    Cost: Ten pounds; food and drink at two feed stations, all profits to charity

    The ride covers some of the climbs from the classic Tour of the Cotswolds road race and is on hard terrain so will be excellent training for racing or Etape du Tour two weeks later. There's fantastic scenery and quiet lanes too so if you want to take it easy instead, that's fine by me.
