Controls: Please be aware that we have asked the cafes
on our event w ether they are willing to 'host' a control.
However cyclists riding the event arrive as normal customers
and should use the cafe with normal courtesy. Very large numbers
of riders may arrive at the same time and, despite the notice
they are given, this may stretch the cafe staff to their limit.
Please be patient, understand the situation the cafes are
in and show due consideration to their non-cycling customers.
- Raphaels Cafe, Evesham is a delightful cyclist friendly
cafe on the banks of the River Avon serving a variety of
hot & cold food.
- Bridge House Tea Rooms, Upton upon Severn has hosted
our control for a couple of years now and the proprietors
are very familiar with hungry cyclists' needs.
