Evans Cycles Somerset Sportive

Event info
Sat 08/08/2015, 08:00

Starting just outside Wells, we're ideally located for a diverse and challenging ride. Riders will take in the almost pan flat Somerset levels to the south with views towards Glastonbury Tor, before heading East for a contrast of challenging climbs. Riders on the long route will get a chance to really get the lungs working with the climb at King Alfred's Tower, before skirting around Shepton Mallet and back to the event centre. With a choice of 4 route lengths and a chance for a pedal in the great British summer, this ride should offer something for everyone. If you're after even more of a challenge, make a weekend of it and try our Sunday sportive as well!

For our second day in the area, we will be offering riders a slightly tougher course than Saturday's ride, with the same fantastic event offering. Starting in the heart of the Mendips, we're ideally set for a scenery-rich day of challenging riding. The route first heads north around the lakes of Chew Valley and Blagdon, before a spin out to the coast at Sand Bay and Weston Super Mare. Riders will then turn back and head East, finishing with an ascent of Cheddar Gorge. This is a great summer challenge that will offer something for all level of cyclist.
