Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance are encouraging supporters to sign up early for their Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge 2015 after an overwhelming response last year.
The event, which is not designed as a race involves cycling through some of Dorset and Somerset’s most beautiful countryside and will take place on Sunday 17 May 2015.
Last year’s event sold out within three weeks of on-line registration being open and demand is expected to be even higher this year. The event saw cyclists of all ages and abilities take part raising over £60,000 for the life-saving charity.
With only 600 places available, anyone wishing to enter should complete on-line registration, which opens on Monday 15 December, via the Charity’s website: www.dsairambulance.org.uk to avoid any disappointment.
The Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge offers two different routes and distances. For those who like a challenge, the brilliant 54 mile cycle which starts in the Somerset port of Watchet and finishes at West Bay near Bridport will not disappoint.
With a mixture of quiet back roads, interspersed with some very demanding climbs and equally hairy descents, the event has something to offer for everyone! For those that don’t want to cycle that far, there is a shorter 11 mile route which begins at Drimpton in Dorset and also finishes at West Bay.
