Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge – 2017

Start from Watchet Harbour-001Our Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge 2017 will take place on Sunday 14th May 2017.

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!

For health and Safety reasons, our annual Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge offers a maximum participation of 600 cyclists and two different routes/distances:

  • 54 miles—commencing in the picturesque historic Somerset town of Watchet and finishing in the beautiful seaside resort of West Bay.
  • 11 miles—commencing in the Dorset village of Drimpton and finishing in West Bay

 

Liaising with parishes along the route we try to involve all communities and have pit stops along the route to provide sustenance to the cyclists.

With the support of West Somerset and West Dorset District Councils, Avon & Somerset and Dorset Police we pride ourselves on offering an event which is registered and insured with British Cycling.

Our event has proved ever popular year on year. In 2016, all 600 places places were snapped up in a matter of days, attracting cyclists of all abilities and ages. Because this is designed to be a challenge and not a race there is no pressure on those who are amateur or occasional cyclists. The event will have two start times, one for club and enthusiast cyclists and another for those who are a little less experienced.

Participants pay a registration fee to enter, however they are also asked to raise additional funds through sponsorship.
