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).

The entry fee only covers the cost of the event, so we're asking our riders to set themselves a target to raise £150, this event would raise enough money to pay for community care across Somerset for 5 days. Help St. Margaret's make each day count for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness.
