Cotswold Edge CX50

Hillesley, Wotton-under-Edge, 11th October 2014

Welcome to CX50 – shorter, sharper courses for a faster and slightly more technically demanding CX Sportive experience!

The Cotswold Edge is maze of folded hills, big, steep climbs and delectable descents. The rocky base creates a firm riding surface off road, complemented by a network of quiet, winding lanes that lead you through some spectacular scenery!

The CX50 course is more technical with a higher proportion of off road than the longer CX Sportive events, but is cleverly designed to give you the majority of your climbing on tarmac and most of your descending on the tracks and trails.

50, 40 & 25km course options.
