South Somerset Screamer Sportive
Join us for an incredible day's riding, taking in some of Somerset's most famous sites including Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor and Ham Hill.
We will be starting at Adventure Café HQ, at Frogmary Green Farm just outside South Petherton. We will then begin our ride north, heading through South Petherton itself and out across the Somerset Levels towards Wedmore, where we'll stop for drink and a snack, giving you the opportunity to refuel before riding through Cheddar itself and hitting the stunning (but lung busting!) climb that is Cheddar Gorge. After winding your way up through the gorge, climbing 370m in the space of 4 miles you are rewarded with stunning views of the Mendips before the exhilarating descent down into Wells. Upon leaving the famous cathedral city our next destination will be the Somerset levels village of North Wootton, where we'll stop for another refuel before heading on to the iconic location of Glastonbury Tor. We will skirt the bottom of the ancient tor before continuing south across the levels to our final stop in the picturesque village of Martock, where we'll be resting up for another food and drink break before the sting in the tail; Ham Hill. From here we will drop back down to our start point at Adventure Café HQ for hot drinks all-round and a hard-earned bite to eat!
7:30-8:00 Rider registration.
