Cycling from The Tite
This is the Cotswolds, so be prepared for some hills. Most are gentle, but some challenge even the fittest cyclists. All four routes below feature stunning scenery, quiet country lanes, clean air and the prospect of a cold pint on your return!
Don’t forget we open for tea, coffee, cakes and bacon baps from 9am on the weekend.
