Please come and sign in at the registration desk from 8am where you will receive your number to be attached to the front of your bike and a voucher for the cafe. You can use your voucher before or after the ride. We will also be taking entries on the day with cash or card payments via your smart phone.

Under 18s

We need a signed parental consent form from the parents/guardians of all riders under 18. There will be copies of these available at registration, but any under 18s riding without a parent can print the attached form and bring it with them on the day. Anyone under 16 must ride with a responsible adult.


Food and drink will be available to buy from the Rise+Grind cafe and all entrants will receive a voucher when they collect their number.

Toilets are available at the end of the cafe building and this year we will also have access to additional toilets on the other side of the drive – follow the signs.

Evesham Adventure Playground will be on hand with their Dr Bike service to make any last minute adjustments to your bikes. They will also have a few of their refurbished bikes available for sale.

Out on the Ride

The routes are all signed with pink arrows until you reach a split point where the different routes head in different directions. Follow the coloured arrow for the distance you have chosen as follows:

Purple – 52 miles

Green – 31 miles

Yellow – 12 miles

Once you have passed the split point you will continue to follow the pink arrows.

There are also GPX files available if you are using a GPS device for navigating. These can be downloaded here:

52 miles

31 miles

12 miles

Do not follow the yellow metal AA Blossom Trail signs. These are for the driving/coach route.

There will be a chance to fill up water bottles and grab a snack at Radford which riders pass through at 8.5 miles for the 12 mile route, at 21 miles for the 31 mile route, and at 21 & 42 miles for the 52 mile route. On the 52 mile route you need to do a very short out and back to reach the feed station the second time. Look for the “Feed Station” signs before the turn to Abberton.

If you have an incident during the ride then please call us and qualified first aiders will be on hand if needed. Contact phone numbers will be on the back of your rider number.

Please also let us know if you choose to abandon the ride and not return to the finish.


When you get back to the finish you’ll be rewarded with a medal and a voucher for a free 1 hour session at the Evesham Velo Park. There will also be more food and drink available to replenish your energy levels!

Charity Contributions

Proceeds from the event will support the local branch of St John Ambulance as well as cycling in the area through Cycle Evesham Vale.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday morning.
