Escapes are small-scale events run locally by Rapha staff members and local Ride Leaders exclusively for Rapha Cycling Club members. These are day, overnight or weekend events attended by a small group of RCC riders hungry for adventure.
This October, RCC Members are invited to take part in a pilgrimage through two of Britain’s areas of outstanding natural beauty: the Cotswolds and North Wessex Downs. Often overlooked for weekend riding trips, both locations boast striking scenery, quiet country lanes and breathtaking views. Local RCC ride leaders have carefully curated every ride to showcase the best the region has to offer.
Arriving on Friday and riding for three days, the club will explore the varied landscapes around the Cotswolds and North Wessex Downs on routes planned by locals and led by RCC Ride Leaders. Following a warm up ride of 40km on Friday afternoon, the rides will be covering routes of around 130km to 150km on Saturday and Sunday, with several different paced groups. Each ride is tailored to explore the region’s beautiful tarmac roads as well as a few local hidden gems.
Prepare for three days of riding over hilly terrain. The exact route and details will be revealed closer to the event date.
RCC Escape Cotswolds is a supported ride to be completed by a group of passionate cyclists. To make sure you’re well-prepared out on the road, ensure you’re prepared for anything by bringing along two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend a spare kit and plenty of food.
- Two nights accommodation at Mollie's Motel & Diner
- Three days of riding, from Friday to Sunday afternoon
- Support from Rapha staff, transporting luggage between locations
- 10% discount on all food and drink at Mollie’s across the weekend
N.B. The final price per person is based on the sharing of a twin room. Pairings and rooms will be allocated closer to the event date.
