2013 EVENT will be held on
SUNDAY 15th SEPTEMBER
Location: Sharpham Road Playing Fields, Cheddar, Somerset, BS27 3DR
Now in its sixth year this popular Sportive takes you through the
picturesque Somerset countryside with the optional challenge of the awesome
Mendip Hills and famous Cheddar Gorge.
The 100km has some short but challenging climbs taking you across the historic
Somerset Levels to Glastonbury, as far south as Somerton, through High Ham, and
back across the levels in a final loop taking in the outstandingly beautiful
villages nestled below Crook Peak before heading back to Cheddar.
The 160km takes in the same first 100km loop with a split when back at
Cheddar taking you east for a series of three climbs. This year we are climbing
Cheddar Gorge, through to Priddy for a well deserved feed stop. Descending into
Wells takes us to the second climb up to Penhill mast, before heading back up
over the Mendips just south of the Chew Valley Lakes to Blagdon for the third
climb Burrington Coombe. Finally we descend Shipham Hill taking us back into
Cheddar for the finish.
A well signed route with three feed stations, electronic chip timing and
changing and shower facilities – all for £23!
