A classic 99km Somerset gravel sportive with a whole lot of variety including the fast flat Somerset levels, the punchy Mendips and a 9km section on the beach. The perfect escape from the city and a chance to see a different side of this beautiful county.

RIDE DIFFICULTY 3/5
TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY 2/5

Bike & Tyre Choice: The route has lots of sections on quiet back lanes along with mixed terrain off road sections. We recommend a gravel bike to be able to ride comfortably both on & off road but a MTB will be fine.
