Tour Ride in the South West
You probably know by now, but just to be sure I thought I’d let you all know that registration is now open for the first Tour Ride in the South West.
This is a charity ride for The Prostate Cancer Charity, along the full route of one of this year’s Tour of Britain stages. It will start in Minehead, Somerset and end in Teignmouth on the South Devon coast. So you have the added bonus of a riding a ‘Coast 2 Coast’.
It’s a challenging route, taking in some wonderful scenery and some tough hills. It has to be said that the West Country is a bit bumpy, but at least you do get some fast downhill stretches!
There will be Tour of Britain directional signage, static and motorcycle marshals, mechanics, well-stocked feed stations and medical support along the whole route. A transfer service to the start will be available at the finish.
Distance: (tbc) 150 Km (94 miles)
Date: Sunday 5th September 2010
Entry Fee for the Pro Ride: £40 per rider
I live in Devon on the South Coast and help run a cycle club in the Axe Valley. I’m also helping to promote the ride for The Prostate Cancer Charity. This is a great part of the country to cycle in and a brilliant and challenging route awaits you.
I’m a bit biased about where I live, so I should also mention that there are two other Tour Rides taking place, one in London on Saturday 18th September and the other in Stoke-on-Trent on Sunday 26th September.
