A long-distance gravel/cyclocross/MTB cycling route in the Cotswolds
The Kemble Round is a challenging 100 mile (160Km) self-guided gravel/cyclocross/MTB route in the Cotswolds. With a 50/50 on/off-road mix, it’s intended as a tough but rewarding single day challenge (or maybe a two-day bikepacking tour) for experienced cyclists, along the lines of the South Downs Way or the Trans-Cambrian Way. It crosses endlessly varied, often beautiful, and occasionally remote countryside, and includes towards 10,000ft (3,000m) of climbing.
A key reason for establishing the Kemble Round was to raise funds for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity, which provides life-saving emergency cover across the whole area. If you ride the Round (or are even just here to read about it) please make a donation to the charity or consider raising money through sponsorship.
Route type: Long Distance circular route
