The Somerset 100 - Charity Ride. Now in it's 3rd year.
35 or 100mile recommended routes - one of the friendliest rides of the year. Raising funds for Above & Beyond, Bristol Hospitals Charity Fundraisers.
EVERYONE comes back year after year and rides this. IT IS NOT A SPORTIVE, SO NO TIMINGS. But a great opportunity to ride without pressure but supported by vehicle backup - a great friendly event where riders from all over the county meet up.

Thanks for all your continued support and making The Somerset 100 another fabulous day!

Although this is a non-competitive charity ride, plenty of you timed yourselves - so we have a quickest rider home. Luke Perrin 5h:08m. For the record, Luke is just 17.

Well done to all our riders - not only did you all provide an amazing atmosphere to our event you also all rode to a high standard and represented cycling at it's very best to other road users and we've received praise from several members of the public who took the trouble to contact us.

Thanks riders, we'll keep you informed on how you all did towards our chosen charity Above & Beyond.
