Ends: 27 Jul 2024

Postponed after a rainy 2023, this event is a unique opportunity to celebrate a love of biking with a love of books. Join us for a leisurely 20-mile social cycle ride, starting at Evesham Velo Park. Led by leading local cyclist, Helen Russell, this ride will pause in Dumbleton to hear about Dumbleton Hall and its literary connections, and visit the grave of Patrick Leigh Fermor, once described as “Britain’s greatest travel writer”. On to Bredon Hill, we will stop for a reading of Housman’s poem, On Bredon Hill.

Ride in conjunction with Cycle Evesham Vale. Suitable for all abilities – there will be a back-marker so no-one will be left behind – and regular or electric bikes. This is a free event but please register with
