A relaxed yet stunning tour around the Somerset levels, this fun ride is about taking your time, enjoying the views and just getting in some early season miles, with some amazing weather in 2018 and a great vibe.

This new sportive returns in 2019. Come join us for a smile that will last for weeks.

Be under no illusion the long route will still test you, its long with an iconic climb and the last 20 miles include a few more climbs just in case you haven't worked hard enough.

With 3 feeds for the long and 2 for the medium, we will refuel you, all you need do is enjoy the day.

Course Details

Short

The Short is an ideal opportunity if you are new to Sportive riding or you just want a nice easy ride, great for a family ride, we are happy for children 14 and Under to attend for FREE, as long as they are accompanied with an paying adult (One adult/one child per entry).

Medium

This medium route for 40 miles is a nice flat affair other than 3 very small climbs (Really they are small), so it could be a quick pace but the ride is more about adding another dimension to your training, its not necessarily about speed ,its about putting those longer miles into the legs.

There are a few tests towards the end of the ride in the shape of some nice climbs that will need some effort.

Long

The long route isn't a leg burner, but it will include the iconic climb through Cheddar Gorge, being an early season sportive, its more about testing where you are after your winter training, but it would be wrong not to include the climb, the cut of times are there for the safety of both the riders and the sanity off the staff.

Be under no illusion the long route will still test you, its long with an iconic climb and the last 20 miles include a few more climbs just in case you haven't worked hard enough.With 3 Aid stations for the long and 2 for the medium, we will refuel you, all you need do is enjoy the day.

FAQs

Are there cut off times?

The cut the cut off's are at 1500, this effectively only affects those on the long route, directing the long riders who don't make it onto the medium routes.

  • Did the Short in 2019

    Overall good nearly missed one sign for a turn lol but seen other riders coming towards me lucky for me
  • Did the Medium in 2019

    scenic course with just a few poor quality stretches of tarmac. well organised with good signage, except for a couple of signs for turnings right on the turn or one hidden by a bush. excellent food stops. low numbers of riders so not a great atmosphere. all in all, friendly, well organised and one to do again - well done to the organisers
  • Did the Medium in 2019

    Roads were muddy in places, but good overall. Great training ride. Some signage could have been more obvious, but again was very good most of the way round. Very handy that the map was available to download prior to the race
  • Did the Long in 2019

    Course was well-signposted, with only a few junctions without signs. The checkin arrangements were poor, with no one on the desks whilst 20+ people were waiting then the organiser arrived and berated people for signing in themselves and taking their numbers. The information about the broom wagon was also poor advising that they would stop the long race at 3pm and no prior information on the event closing at 4pm.
