Beyond Somerset Sportive



A relaxed yet stunning tour around the Somerset levels, this fun ride is about taking your time, enjoying the views and just getting in some early season miles.

Now in its fourth year, with a partial re-route and revamp for 2020, making it so all routes ride the Cheddar gorge climb and well as making the Medium a 100km ride.

In a new event location for 2020 and strictly limited to 500 riders come join us for a smile that will last for weeks. #iridebeyond


Starting and finishing at Glastonbury football ground (Abbey moor stadium), we have tried to keep all the good bits of the previous year’s rides, the ride routes have all been adjusted, to remove a few climbs but to still keep the ride an interesting mix of flat sections, short sharp climbs and off course the bit you want to ride cheddar gorge.


With a strict limit of 500 riders.
