Route information
Choose from either the Long or Medium route as you explore the fantastic Somerset and Wiltshire countryside.
Long Route
Starting in Frome, you will head off-road to take on some gradual climbs to White Sheet Castle. The route will then take you through farm and forest tracks. There will be some rolling hills and quiet lanes throughout to keep you on your toes. The final climb will take you to some of the best views on the route before a quick descent back to the start line.
Medium Route
The 60k medium route will follow the long route for the first 28k. After that you will split away, staying on the ridgeway for another 5k before fast and fun off-road descent. Turning onto flat tarmac roads you will have 10k before the final gravel climb up to the finish line.
