The Taunton Flyer sportive, now in its 6th year, will take place from Taunton Racecourse on Sunday 21st July 2019.
The Taunton Flyer is themed around the wartime airfields of East Devon and Somerset, with routes that go past RAF Exeter (Exeter Airport), RAF Dunkeswell, RAF Upottery (Smeatharpe), RAF Culmhead, RAF Merryfield, and RAF Westonzoyland.
This popular sportive offers a mixture of nice flowing, flat, open roads combined with a couple of testing climbs in the Blackdown Hills (an area of outstanding natural beauty).
The Taunton Flyer offers you a choice of three routes:
- The Spitfire (58 km / 36 miles)
- The Dakota (114 km / 70 miles), or
- The Wellington (178 km / 111 miles).
All routes are well signed and fully supported. We have well stocked feed stations with a wide selection of sweet & savory foods, plus hot and cold drinks.
The sportive includes electronic chip timing (with split points) providing you with an official completion time, plus a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal standard for both your age and gender category. All finishers will be awarded a quality medal and Goody Bag.
