The Cheltenham Blitz

This was one of my first ever rides in Cheltenham and whenever I only had an hour or two to spare it was my go to. Cleeve Hill is one of two major climbs out of Cheltenham and it's deceptively steep most ways up (unless you come from Winchcombe). The rest of the route is casual so put in the energy on Cleeve and enjoy yourself coming down and looping round North. The route also goes through the Cheltenham racecourse where you can pick up some real pace on long stretches of traffic-free tarmac.
