The inaugural Wedmore 40/30 attracted 151 riders who cycled courses from 12 to 70 miles across the Mendips and the levels.
A great deal of money was raised for Weston Hospicecare and for The Friends of St. Mary’s Wedmore.
Look out for the 2019 edition – bigger and better!

The event offers a choice of three routes:
The Short and easiest route of 30 miles will take you south of Wedmore around the beautiful Somerset Levels. Starting at 10am.
The Medium and more challenging route of 40 miles heads north of Wedmore, up through the iconic Cheddar Gorge, across the spectacular Mendip Hills and round Blagdon Lake before venturing back over the Mendips to Wedmore. Starting at 9am
Or why not do both – The Full route of 70 miles? First you ride the 40 mile route across the Mendips and round Blagdon Lake, then back to Wedmore for a quick refuel, before finishing with the easier 30 mile route round the Somerset Levels, returning to Wedmore for a well-earned rest. Starting at 9am
All routes start from:
Wedmore Playing Fields, Blackford Road Wedmore
