We normally stick to the heart of the Cotswolds but this time thought we would venture east. We ended up riding along Fosse Way and came across a nice sharp left bend on Sun Rising Hill where BikerPics were camped ?
Be careful riding along Fosse Way. While it is a straight road there are plenty of junctions and it is an accident hotspot. Ride Safe!
Firstly starting in Redditch (or Studley) make your way towards Stratford-upon-Avon along the A435 and A46. Turn right off the A46 and go through Binton village because it is a nicer ride. Now you need to take the A3400 the other side of Stratford but you can take a detour through the town. Take the Clopton Bridge over the river if you have never seen Stratford, it’s a lovely town.
Follow the A3400 through Alderminster, Newbold on Stour, Shipston-on-Stour and Long Compton. Just outside Chipping Norton pick up the A361 towards Banbury and follow it all the way to Banbury.
In Banbury turn left onto the B4100. After a short way turn left again onto the A422 and stay on it all the way to Fosse Way (B4455). Before you get to Fosse Way, at Edgehill you will find Sun Rising Hill. Enjoy it! ?
When you get to Fosse Way (B4455), take a right and ride along it for as long as you like. When you have had enough (we spun around at Royal Leamington Spa), do a 360 and head back along it until you pick up the A3400.
Having arrived back at the A3400 just follow it to Stratford-upon-Avon. Follow the reverse of the route back to Redditch (or Studley) to complete the trip.
