Beyond Somerset Sportive

BEYOND SOMERSET SPORTIVE

SUNDAY EVENT

A relaxed yet stunning tour around the Somerset levels, this fun ride is about taking your time, enjoying the views and just getting in some early season miles.

Now in its fifth year and again all routes ride the CHEDDAR GORGE CLIMB

 

Strictly limited to 500 riders come join us for a smile that will last for weeks. #iridebeyond

 

Starting and finishing at Glastonbury football ground (Abbey moor stadium), we have kept all the good bits of the previous year’s rides, and the ride routes have all been adjusted, to remove a few climbs but to still keep the ride an interesting mix of flat sections, short sharp climbs and off course the bit you want to ride CHEDDAR GORGE

 

With a strict limit of 500 riders (per day).

 

BEYOND SOMERSET SPORTIVE:

MEDIUM ROUTE 110 km or 68 Miles

This medium route at 110km is a nice flat (ish) affair other than the Cheddar gorge climb (Its long and steady), the ride could be a quick pace but the event is more about adding another dimension to your training, it’s not necessarily about speed it’s about putting those longer miles into the legs.

There are a few tests during the ride in the shape of some nice climbs that will need some effort.

MEDIUM ROUTE   Includes 2 feed stations
