Support your spring training this April with Beyond Event's Somerset Sportive. With 5 different distances to choose from, there is an event for everyone, and the course welcomes riders of all abilities. All routes now include the iconic Cheddar Gorge climb, and everyone goes home with a medal.

Beyond Somerset Sportive routes

2020 Routes have been amended to include all the best parts of previous years' courses. Some of the leg-burners have been removed, but now all courses ride the Cheddar Gorge climb, and long and steady climb that adds a new dimension to your training and race.

The Short is an ideal opportunity if you are new to Sportive riding or you just want a nice easy ride. This distance is great for a family ride, with those under 14 riding free.

This medium route at 110km is a nice flat (ish) affair other than the Cheddar gorge climb. While this route could be done quickly, the emphasis is on adding another dimension to your training, putting those longer miles into your legs during the important spring training.

The long route isn't a leg burner, but it will include the iconic climb through Cheddar Gorge. Being an early season sportive, this route is more about testing where you stand after winter training, and will help you see the areas to work on. That being said, the long route is still tough, with considerable distance to cover and some thigh-burning climbs.

There will be 1 aid station on the short route, 2 on the medium, and 3 on the long route.
