The highly-acclaimed Great Weston Ride will be back again in 2021 after its eleventh outing overcame the coronavirus challenge and was rated a huge success by the people who matter most – the riders themselves.
This now means that the GWR is extremely well-placed for whatever 2021 brings. The spectacular city-to-coast route starts in Bristol and then takes riders through some stunning countryside and picturesque Somerset villages as it weaves its way through the Mendips and across the Somerset Levels before finishing on the seafront in Weston-super-Mare.
With no fewer than eight route and distance options on the day there is definitely something on offer for pretty much everyone, regardless of previous cycling experience, and another significant element of the GWR is its optional fundraising dimension – to date participants have helped to raise over £260,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, the event’s official charity partner, and almost £400,000 now in total for a wide range of charities and good causes.
