Cheltenham & Cotswold Advanced Motorcyclists
promoting safer riding

The Cotswold Challenge is roughly based on the Round Britian Rally, but a little more compact! Each year the Committee will set 30 landmarks to find throughout the whole of the Cotswold region, Chipping Campden in the North, Bath in the South, Gloucester in the West and Witney in the East. Simply locate the landmark and photograph it along with your bike, as in the photos dotted around this page.

Last years list is below, so you can see how simple it is. You have at least 6 months to do it and if you are stuck with the question, 'where shall I go to today?', you have your answer, go and explore the wonderful countryside on our doorstep and splendid roads.

You never know this may entice you to have a go at the Round Britain Rally. Two club members have already signed up to have ago at this. In the Round Britain Rally, you have to find 90 landmarks in each county on main land Britain. (Bigger counties have more than one landmark). You can do as many as you want, you don't have to do them all. Click here to see my 2010 entry photos in the RBR (Gold award for this attempt!) Click here to go to the Round Britain Rally website.
