COTSWOLDS POOTLE: 24th November; it's official.
Does this make Pook a prophet? Or is he more like a franchise?
Well… whatever… he’s either Jesus, Starbucks, or a combination of the two.
Any-road-up. We’re in! 24th is plenty of notice so I think a journey south is in order. i Shall sort out grand-parental childcare. I shall be bringing the missus but I think she’ll favour seeing local(ish) friends while drinking wine, rather than riding. Particularly after last time I was down, I came back with the haunted look of Scott of the Antarctic, or a Vietnam vet. 😀

Alrighty then, there was plenty of interest here, so here we go.
Hear ye, hear ye, the inaugural Cotswolds Pootle will take place on Saturday the 24th November. Roll up roll up, come one come all.
Wheels roll at 10:30am from the library car park, Winchcombe (Back Lane, GL54 5PZ), so, if you’re a pre-ride faffer (and aren’t we all) arrive in plenty of time.
The figurehead of the Pootle Movement, Pook* (peace be upon him) laid down the following Rules of Pootle
1) if you’re fast, hold the gates and count the folks through
2) if you’re slow – have something to talk about with the other 20 people with you
3) bring cake
Pootles aren’t a typical ‘group ride’. I started them ‘cos I hated being the person at the back. I wanted a group ride for the people at the back. There aren’t any people at the back in a pootle.
Bring your newby mates, bring your other halves, bring yourself. It’ll be pootletastic.

Is the nearest station Cheltenham Spa? I’m provisionally in.
It is the nearest station worth considering, there is a station at Ashchurch(Tewkesbury) but has a crap sunday service. Cheltenham Spa is 10ish miles from Winchcombe though, so depending on your legs and the 1000ft of Cleeve hill between Cheltenham and Winchcombe you might want to try and cadge a lift.Posted 5 years ago
To quote myself on t’other thread
Picturesque cart track/country lane-ish stuff interspersed with more interesting stuff. None of it particularly difficult though; all entirely newbie friendly, but with enough interest (hopefully) to keep your general weekend warrior entertained. Gnarr-CoreMax riders may be a bit bored.
