Riding the classic route for our 175km audax, but just as a challenge ride this year. Head out past Longleat to King Alfred’s Tower and onwards to Sherborne for lunch at 58 miles in Olivers Cafe. We take a new route into Sherborne this year via North and South Cadbury and Sandford Orcas, avoiding the narrow Lower Woolston Road. Take a quick look at Sherborne’s famous Abbey before heading for home. On the return leg there are options to stop at Stourhead National Trust Cafe (76 miles) and at various cafes in Frome (87 miles).
A note about Challenge Rides:
All riders should be comfortable with the challenge of riding longer distances. It’s intended to ride the routes at a steady pace, so the group can stay together. If some people prefer to ride faster and/or if there are sufficient numbers we’ll split into separate groups. All participants should be competent and completely self-contained, carrying tools, tubes, spares etc, and enough food/drink/money to see them through the day. There is no ride-leader, no back-marker, and no route sheet. Everyone is advised to familiarise themselves with the route in advance and to carry relevant maps and directions (paper or GPS, or both!). Lights are recommended on the longer rides, in case it’s getting dark at the finish.
