BEYOND WESSEX SPORTIVE

The Beyond Wessex Sportive is a spectacular cycling tour of the Dorset and Somerset Landscape.

It is the start of the summer and you want to see what those legs can do in what is, an event we still class as a challenge, just not such numerous tough climbs.(Unless your doing the Long route)

Reflective of a true Dorset/Somerset sportive, with an undulating but rolling landscape with patchwork field views, quiet back roads and chocolate box villages.

With aid stations and on course support, you ride, we will help you finish.

Starting and finishing near Bridport just 2 miles from the Jurassic coast and the stunning West Bay.

Strictly limited to 500 riders come join us for a smile that will last for weeks. #iridebeyond
