Your start point

Offerton Cruise (15 miles) – starts at Offerton
Full Ring starts WR1 3EH
Parking is available at Worcester Racecourse (Pitchcroft) which is right by the club. There is a height barrier here – if you have a hatchback or estate with a boat on top you should be OK, but be careful. If you have a higher sided vehicle you can park at the club – a marshal will show you where.
The easiest way to get here is to come off the M5 at junction 7 and follow signs to the city centre. Once you have passed the cathedral get into the right hand lane then follow the signs to A449 Kidderminster. You will turn off right just before the main bridge, so you will have the River Severn immediately to your left. Stay in the left hand lane. In a few hundred metres you will go through a mini-rounabout and under a railway bridge. Turn next left into Severn Terrace then immediately left into the public car park. Watch the height barriers! Go straight ahead through the gate and you pass over the racecourse itself and into the Worcester Ring parking.
Offerton Cruise starts WR3 8SX
If you are doing the Offerton Cruise please go directly there and park. A marshal will register you and set you on your way. The course finishes at the canoe club, we will drive you back to your car a the end when you are ready.
The easiest way is to exit the M5 at junction 6 then follow the signs to Droitwich A4538 also labelled as the Rugby Ground and Park and Ride.
