Route information
Starting from Wells, you will skirt the edge of the Mendip Hills for a chance to warm up your legs on the Somerset Levels.
You'll take on challenging climb via Canada Coombe, soaking in some stunning views from the top of Bleadon Hill. From here, you will follow the Mendips ridge back to Cheddar to ride up the iconic Cheddar Gorge.
The last major climb of Harptree Hill is probably the toughest of the day. This will take you back over the Mendip ridge one last time before picking up a long downhill run with views across to Glastonbury Tor to bring you back to the finish.
