  • Friday ride to Cirencester (Dell Evans)


    Description:

    This year Dell will be leading a ride Friday to the Royal Agricultural University at Cirencester.

    We will depart from GHD at approximately TIME TBC for Cirencester and the Cotswolds. 

    We will take some less ridden roads towards the M4 J15 (via A31, A325, A287, A30, A339, A4, B4192 and A419) avoiding the M4 if possible, to arrive in Cirencester around check-in time, giving you time to have a look around, freshen-up ready for the bar opening at 4pm.

    The B4192 takes the ride over the M4 and joins the A419 dual carriageway which becomes Cirencester Road.  Then eventually right onto Stroud Road and the entrance to RAU.  Calcutt Services are about 15 minutes before Cirencester and that has been the usual fuel stop for smaller tanks. However most sportsters should be able to do 80 miles without refueling.

    There will also be time on Saturday morning to get fuel at one the local garages before the Saturday ride-out.

    The ride is approximately 85 miles and 1 hour 45 minutes.  If I can find somewhere safe to stop on-route I will.  However trying to accommodate > 50 bikes and trikes in a layby could be challenge!
