The Carousel Tea Room on Tewkesbury High Street (north end). It has a couple of benches outside. Good for coffee and cake.

Re: Club Run Database - Time for an update?

All my cycling, running and walking routes (600+ since 2011) are in RWGPS, most bike routes start/finish in Bromsgrove.

Sunday's C run will probably be to Alcester, >80km/50mi. However, I need to check with the café first. Also, I'm not going to be able to recce the route beforehand, so if anyone knows of any floods etc down that way, please let me know.

Thanks for the synopsis George. It sounds as though the tour has returned to exciting form. Providing their are no related doping scandals I may well start following it again.
I'm sure the organisers will be mightily relieved to hear that, Philip.

I'll lead a C run to the Pump House in Worcester (another new cafe I think) but there's a catch. You'll need to find your way to Tardebigge and I'll lead it from there. Usual start time 9.15 from BH, approx 9.45 at Tardebigge. About 90km (56 miles) round trip.

Forgot to say, passing the 100 mile mark (well almost) will be celebrated at the Coach and Horses, Weatheroak.

I expect the pace will be around 12.5-13.5 mph (7.5-8 hours plus stops). B runners welcome if you fancy a longer, slower one for a change.
