It is a non-competitive event, with the focus being on participation in a supportive atmosphere, and is being run in conjunction with British Cycling. Registrations are now open with entry in advance priced £20 for the 50km route and £30 for 102km, both increasing by £5 for entries on the day.
Sportives are a great way for people to get fit and challenge themselves, with the group nature of the event providing a fantastic opportunity for camaraderie and a chance to cycle between two iconic locations through the beautiful Somerset countryside.
Entrants must be aged 18 and over and they will benefit from:
Free parking at the Sports Training Village;
Access to toilets at the Sports Training Village;
On-course medical and mechanical support;
Three feed stations on the longer route, one feed station on the shorter route;
