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.

All routes ride the stunning Cheddar gorge climb so come join us for a smile that will last for weeks. #iridebeyond

Starting and finishing at Glastonbury football ground (Abbey moor stadium), we have tried to keep all the good bits of the previous years rides, the ride routes have all been adjusted, to remove a few climbs but to still keep the ride an interesting mix of flat sections, short sharp climbs and off course the bit you you want to ride cheddar gorge.

Beyond Somerset Sportive routes

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).

This medium route at 110km is a nice flat (ish) affair other than the Cheddar gorge climb (Its long and steady), the ride could be a quick pace but the event 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 during the ride in the shape of some nice climbs that will need some effort.

2 aid stations on the Medium route.

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 a few other inclines just in case you haven't worked hard enough.

There will be 3 Aid stations for the long route.

    Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. There is no issue with you using an e-bike. The Event Organiser requests that you make sure it is charged as they do not have spares. :)
