Carpet Baggers 50

80 km / 50 miles

Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire
This pan-handle shaped route passes through Bewdley, along the Severn Valley, through Seckley Wood, part of the Wyre Forest, then Arley, and after crossing the Severn, Alverley, Claverley, Seisdon and Trysul, to reach Abbot's Hill and along the Staffordshire Way. A climb over Kinver Edge is followed by a return to the Severn along the opposite (east) bank. Profits go to a local gym club charity that caters for disabled youngsters, the venue from which the route starts.
