Alternative to Bridge to Nowhere

This route shows the extra distance a cycle-user would need to make without a cycle-bridge as part of the proposed Oxpens Masterplan.  It uses the existing Gasworks Bridge, which is in excellent condition but needs its approaches improved on the North side.
Cyclox is posting this because we are concerned that the proposal to build an extra bridge, just 350m upstream of the Gasworks Bridge, is a waste of money.  There are better locations for an extra river-crossing bridge if one is to be built near here,

Cotswold Circular from Kingham

This 24-mile (38 km) circular tour incorporates the classic Cotswold villages which attract visitors from all parts: Stow-on-the-Wold; Upper and Lower Swell; Lower and Upper Slaughter; Bourton-on-the-Water; the Rissingtons (Upper, Lower and Wyck). Inevitably, since "Wold" means rolling hills, be prepared for some ups and downs as you roll.

The circle can conveniently start and finish at Kingham Rail Station, which is on the Cotswold line from Oxford (30 minutes) to Worcester and Hereford. Or come up from London Paddington (90 minutes) on a day return.

If you're taking a full size bike on a train, you have to book the (free) cyclespace in advance on Great Western trains (www.gwr.com).  If you have a folding bike, you don't need to book.
