WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS TRIP?

This is one of our prettiest routes by far! This 3 day ride takes us through the very heart of the Cotswolds, around rural Oxfordshire and through the quiet country villages of Northamptonshire. Every village has its own unique character, and for successfully conquering some tough climbs, we are rewarded with stunning views of South Wales and the Cotswold Hills, not to mention a country pub after what seems like every turn! Our campsites in 2019 were in the Cotswold village of Chedworth, famous for its Roman Villa, and the Oxfordshire village of Mollington. Both are beautiful spots for an evening of star-gazing and our hosts go the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and welcome. One thing which sets this ride apart is our Bristol guide team, Shambala veterans, experienced cyclists and wonderful people. They just make the experience!
