The Taunton Flyer Sportive

Date & Location

Taunton, Devon

Organiser’s Description

Now in its third year and departing from Taunton Racecourse, the Taunton Flyer will take you on an exciting journey around the historic wartime airfields of East Devon and Somerset. This is a great early season sportive, with lots of nice flat open roads combined with a couple of testing climbs into the Blackdown Hills. New for 2016 is a choice of three routes: the Spitfire (55 km/34 miles); the Dakota (114 km/70 miles), or the Wellington (178 km/111 miles). The Dakota includes a 'bail-out' option at the Dunkeswell loop that will reduce the distance to 63 miles (100 km).
