The highly-acclaimed Great Weston Ride cycling challenge from Bristol to Weston-super-Mare.
This relaxed and welcoming West Country event once again received lavish praise and excellent reviews from its participants, and it has earned a well-deserved reputation as an ultra-friendly challenge ride that encourages and attracts all manner of people from cycling beginners right through to seasoned riders.
The spectacular city-to-coast route starts in Bristol and then takes riders through some stunning countryside and picturesque Somerset villages as it weaves its way through the Mendips and across the Somerset Levels before finishing on the seafront in Weston-super-Mare, and the next edition is taking place on Sunday 19th July 2020.
It’s certainly a little bit different compared with most cycling events and from the rider feedback comments it’s abundantly clear that the emphasis with the Great Weston Ride is very much on the pure pleasure and enjoyment of riding a bike whilst rising to a personal challenge as part of a great day out.
With no fewer than EIGHT routes and distance options on the day there is definitely something on offer for pretty much everyone, regardless of previous cycling experience, and another significant element of the GWR is its optional fundraising dimension – to date participants have helped to raise over £235,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, the event’s official charity partner, and around £355,000 in total for a wide range of charities and good causes.
So there are clearly lots of very good reasons to take on the Great Weston Ride challenge, and it promises to be a great day out for all who enter.
