Spectators are welcomed at the start and finish points.

Refreshments and toilets will be available at the start and finish of the ride, and there will be waterstops along the route.

The routes

The ride will be fully signed and marshalled. First aid and refreshments will be available en route, and you'll also be provided with a route map.

Pets are allowed to accompany spectators but cannot be out on the route, and should be kept on a lead at all times.

Information about our new 67 mile route

This brand new, longer route will split from the 48 mile route in Cossington. From there it will use a small section of the national cycle path route 3(33) towards Bawdrip and then Chedzoy. You will then follow roads and paths passing through Sutton Mallet, Moorlinch, Greinton, Littleton, Walton and then to Ashcott where you'll rejoin the other routes and head towards the finish line at Abbey Moor Stadium. 

This route offers a substantially tougher challenge than the shorter distances available as you'll be contending with steep hills - including Turn Hill - and busier roads.
