Route information
We are pleased to confirm that our planned route for this year will remain the same as last year. This will include a climb up Ham Road, which will be closed to traffic, during the early stages of the ride.
Due to the location of our start site, a climb in the early stages of the route is inevitable, however this route ensures it is slightly further into the ride than other alternatives meaning legs will be warmer beforehand, whilst the road closure will ensure a better experience for all.
We'll also have a cheer squad lining the hill for encouragement, and people who wish to walk will be asked to keep left in order to avoid congestion for anyone who wishes to take the challenge via their pedals.
The event will be signed and marshals will be present at key points along the route. First aid support will be present. Free water and toilets will be available at the start/finish location, and there are plenty of cafes and public houses en-route. Luggage storage and changing rooms will not be available.

Kit List
Bike
You’ll need a well-maintained, reliable and safe bike for your challenge. There are so many different types of bike at a range of prices so it’s worth going to a specialist bike shop and getting fitted. They’ll be able to advise on which is the right type of bike for you.
Helmet
There’s no excuse for not wearing a helmet - they’re lightweight, comfortable to wear and cheap.
Shoes
The type of shoe you’ll need depends on your bike. If you have a road bike which has clip in pedals you’ll need bike shoes with cleats that fit into your pedals.
Water bottles
It’s important to make sure you stay hydrated on the road. Most road bikes will have a holder for two water bottles.
Spare tubes
Carry spare inner tubes on longer rides in case you get a puncture.
