The Ridgeway is Europe’s oldest continually used highway. Dating back thousands of years, this was a prehistorically important route, with many ancient landmarks along it’s length, and ending at the magnificent stone circles of Avebury (which predates Stonehenge by some 700 years!)
Today, the Ridgeway remains a popular recreational route, and a fantastic long distance off road trail! Faster paced and less extreme than the South Downs Way, the Ridgeway is a fantastic gravel bike ride and gives you plenty to get your teeth into. The route keeps you high up and offers continuous sweeping views, with just enough dips and diversions along the ridge to keep your climbing / descending muscles ticking over! The surface only occasionally gets semi-technical, leaving you with 100km of very rideable trail to enjoy! It’s a ride that invites you to open up your engines, and test how long you can keep them running!
And we make sure that all you have to think about is riding. Our team have over 20 years experience running long distance off road challenges, and detailed knowledge of the Ridgeway itself. The Ridgeway 100 Century to the Stones is fully supported, from route marking to multiple feed and support stops, so all you have to do is concentrate on taking on this epic ride!
