The Somerset 100 Our annual ride has become very well known and enjoys a full field of support every year. We keep costs, rider numbers and entry fees down, then donate reminding profits to several local charities. We like to organise the sort of event EVERYONE can enjoy, feel they can manage and be part of the overall event atmosphere. 

We absolutely DO NOT RUN TIMING CHIPS which is why we think this ride is so enjoyable! With three distance choices that give everyone a chance to ride and be involved: 30 miles (ish) Easy riding, set off with everyone else, very quiet route to an easy split route, short little hill and a very scenic return ride across the levels - ideal if you are not a regular cyclist or have a keener cyclist out on a longer distance and it's very manageable. You are free to ride ANY distance on the day, but please enter the distance you intend to ride to help us make provisions for feed stops etc, etc. NO FEED OR WATER STOP is provided for the short 30mile route. Actual routes will be published via social media and e-mail nearer the event and available on GARMIN but as always it's very nearly the same as previous years with a few avoidances, improvements or amendments. or 100 kilometres (ish) Not challenging terrain - no really steep gradients. First feed stop is currently planned as last year in Long Load - after that you will reach a split with options to continue on the 100mile or head back home on the 100k route across the levels. You are free to ride ANY distance on the day, but please enter the distance you intend to ride to help us make provisions for feed stops etc, etc. Actual routes will be published via social media and e-mail nearer the event and available on GARMIN. or 100 mile 'Century' (ish) The first 60miles are relatively easy terrain, first feed stop is currently planned as last year in Long Load - after that you will reach a split with options to continue on the 100mile or head back home on the 100k route across the levels. The 100mile route will take you steadily up to the second feed stop after which you will then make your way to the highest point of the Mendips but without any ridiculous or long 'macho' gradients. From there you will have a long recovery decent into Wells and return across the levels. You are free to ride ANY distance on the day, but please enter the distance you intend to ride to help us make provisions for feed stops etc, etc. Actual routes will be published via social media and e-mail nearer the event and available on GARMIN.
