Route information
The Mendips Classic routes take on roads that UK Cycling Events have been taking on for years and includes some old favourites from the area.
The Long, Middle and Short routes all make their way through the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, creating a wonderful experience for all riders, with stunning scenery all around.
Riders taking on the Middle route will experience the stunning surroundings of Cheddar Gorge. With the variety of routes on offer, you can challenge yourself with some tough climbs on the longer routes or opt for the slightly shorter and flatter routes. Whatever you choose it will be a fantastic day out on the bike, and an experience to remember.
The route will be extremely well signed and will have multiple feed stops provided by OTE Sports Nutrition.
After a stunning but tough day out on the road you will be well rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line. Everyone will of course receive their finisher's medal, but also you will receive beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from the event partners.
The UK Cycling Events' Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical this event is open to anyone and with the wonderful routes and the friendly atmosphere, it is one not to be missed.

Did the Middle in 2019
Let the registration give people their numbers as they trickle in, with everybody with their thumb up their arses and brain in neutral, it’s a waste of time. All your doing is creating a backlog, on a personal note the last feed station could be closer, as I only stop at one I used the coop about 80 miles out, but that’s just me. A well organised and well run ride it’s my second year and will be coming again.
