The Somerset 100 (35m, 100k or 100miles)

Cycle Sportive , Nr. WEDMORE – Sunday, 15 May 2016

Entry powered by British Cycling
Registered Sportive

Event Summary

Event Overview

Back again - you all love this one so we simply have to run it.

By popular demand a 100k course will be included again. Choice of 100miles, 100k or a 35miles course, same routes as last year, (slightly tweeked here and there) and once again you'll receive a 'Broom Wagon' throughout the 100mile course plus a Food Stop just when you need it at 68miles. Every year we arrange fabulous sunshine, a full field of riders, giggles and larks with some of THE nicest and funniest riders you could meet. Some in fancy dress, some just downright odd but all make it a great day to be riding. Normally a lead group rattle around sharpish 'cometing' riders as they go - so you can stick with them if you're a racer or keener club rider - others giggle their way round!


WE DON'T RUN TIMING CHIPS - IT'S NOT A TIMED SPORTIVE.
So less pressure for speed and more focus on enjoyment, taking in some fabulous countryside that you didn't even know exisited!

Once again from Sweets Tea Rooms, Blakeway, Nr. Wedmore. Where there will be a 'Rider Board' on display with entrants in the months leading up to the event.
