Cheltenham Winchcombe Arch Cycling Route


This 35 mile Cheltenham cycling route has some nice climb to it. At 2000 feet, you can expect two cardio intensive gradual climbs, one of which is the classic Cleeve Hill reverse, coming from the picturesque Cotswold town of Winchcombe.
The other gradual climb that you will hit first is through Lidcombe Wood. As entertaining as it deceiving, this climb through tall trees keeps on going. When you think you are at the top, you are mistaken.

It has a great decent towards Guiting Power which soon swings you right round into the beautiful town of Winchcombe. I recommend a stop at the co-op for a flapjack. It’s what I always do in order to get the energy for a final push up Cleeve Hill and back down into Cheltenham.

Angus founded Cyced in 2016 and can be found at his local Parkrun in Manchester every Saturday. He also has a thing for data (as weird as it sounds) and loves visualising it through maps!
