Which way are you heading for this one Dave? Might have met you if you were stopping somewhere North of Stow.

Plenty of good cafes up into the Cotswolds where you'll get into no bother on a Sunday.

I have been thinking about this , I feel the best might be for me to pick up a selection of bits and come back to HQ after the ride mainly because its heaving with tourists at the moment and getting a group in a cafe is going to be a mission and then the worry of keeping the bikes safe. :? (this is with the route planned)

Hopefully if the weather is dapper then we can stop at the local pub garden where we can sit with the bikes?

I am just going to go with the flow with the weather and feelings on the day :D


Just a thought - This is a great stop inbetween Stow and Broadway, its got a great cafe, is perfectly safe for bikes and we've used in for years in the Evesham Wheelers.

Having just looked at the weather forecast, I might fit snow tyres to the Raleigh.
