Saracen RC 200km  No. 1 permanent Audax

The Saracen Road Club organise two permanent 200km Audax events, imaginatively titled “Saracen RC 200km  No. 1” and  “Saracen RC 200km  No. 2”.

This our Number One course takes you from the start at the Tesco Express in Bournville south to Tewkesbury for the first control at the Royal Hop Pole pub at 59km.

Then to keep the distance as manageable as possible there are open controls at Ledbury (83km), Bromyard (104km) and Leominster (122km). Ledbury is merely a proof of passage but both Bromyard and Leominster offer an excellent variety of café stops.

Its then on to Ludlow (140km) for the last control before the final section. Of course if you feel you would like to push on and have a shorter final leg there is the option of just getting a receipt (proof of passage) and taking a café stop at Cleobury Mortimer (time allowing)

There are a few climbs along the route but the only real one of note is climb up to Clee Hill at around 150km
