Another new addition to the Wiggle Super Series for 2013, the Stratford Tempest offers a choice of 3 route distances starting from Warwick Racecourse.
A choice of 2 route options are available –
- Epic – 100 miles
- Standard – 62 miles
- Short – 52 miles
“Quiet roads lead immediately to Shakespeare country, wondrous villages lead to the Stratford and Avon Canal, where the ride zig zags aqueducts and the canal, along the River Alne and its quaint hamlets, before reaching “Rynild Street” Old Roman Road.
This straight section brings you quickly towards a looming hill, (the challenge yet to come). Saintbury Hill begins well as you climb through the fabulous looking village, the climb then tightens into a major climb until you reach the top of ‘Mile Drive Hill’, with it’s amazing views. You are rewarded with a decent down Dovers Hill, which makes the climb even more rewarding.
A nice flat section allows you to regain your legs along the banks of the River Dene, before Walton Park and Charecote Park give classic views of old country estates.
After parts of the Shakespeare Avon Way, you arrive at the historic Norman Village of Sniterfield, ready for the final push home to Warwick Racecourse.”
