The Great Somerset Cycle - the hospice to hospice cycle ride, kindly sponsored by The Bicycle Chain. Cycling between our Taunton and Yeovil hospices, you'll get to take in the full beauty of the Somerset countryside in summer, while enjoying a challenge in aid of St. Margaret's.

The ride gives you the opportunity to start from either hospice.

Registration will be open from 8am. The ride will commence at 9am, where you'll be waved off by the crowds.

Refreshments will be available before and after the ride and for spectators throughout. There will also be a water station at the halfway point.

The majority of the ride will take place on quiet B roads which will be marshalled for safety with on course mechanical support available.

There are 2 distances to choose from, 38 miles (from one hospice to another) and 75 miles (from one hospice to another and back again). 

You can view the proposed route here, but please note that this course is provisional and may be subject to change.

Cyclists will get a cycling jersey and medal to celebrate their achievement.

If every rider raised £100, this event would raise enough money to pay for community care across Somerset for 4 days. Help St. Margaret's make each day count for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness.
