The extremely well signed 'figure of eight' course takes in several classic climbs of the area including Nebsworth Lane, Snowshill and Butlers Lane but is also full of smaller notoriously leg sapping Cotswold lumps and bumps which the area is famous for in the cycling world.

Well stocked feed stations will be located at 30, 55 and 80 miles. This one really is for the serious cyclist. It's recommended that you train for this ride in order to complete the distance.

Timing - for the best 5 hours, for the indefatigable 8 - 10 hours. Riders on The Monster 100 will be required to start between 7am and 8am.
