A Somerset village is gearing up for a repeat of last year’s successful cycling event.
Wedmore 40 30 returns for a second time and once again entrants can choose from a selection of 4 routes: 12, 30, 40 and 70 miles.
The 12 mile route is a fun ride, the 30 mile cycle is a short ride across the Somerset Levels and the 40 mile route is a hilly cycle across the Mendips. And for a bigger challenge, cyclists can embark on the 70 mile route which incorporates both the Mendips and the Levels.
As the event is being held on Father’s Day, Sunday 16th June, there is a special opportunity this year for any children aged 16 and under to register and cycle for free, as long as they are accompanied by an adult family member. All routes start from Wedmore Playing Fields.
This year the organisers are pleased to be supported by their main sponsor Tout’s Budgens who will be providing the majority of the catering.
The event will raise money for Weston Hospicecare and Friends of St Mary’s Church, Wedmore.
