The Ride will as usual be centred on Cirencester Park and quite a large part will be contained within it. We are however looking at earlier routes which extended beyond the Park boundaries, with the aim of reducing the number of repetitive loops. This work is in progress and as soon as viable routes are identified they will be published on the website. The character of the ride will wherever possible be maintained with bridleways and private tracks still forming the core of the Ride. Tarmac %: minimal
