Ridgeway 100: Century to the Stones
Promoted by: CX Sportive
Summary: The Ridgeway is Europe’s oldest continually used highway – dating back thousands of years, this was a prehistorically important route, with many ancient landmarks along it’s length, and ending at the magnificent stone circles of Avebury (which predates Stonehenge by some 700 years!)
Today, the Ridgeway remains a popular recreational route, and a fantastic long distance MTB trail! Fast paced and perfect for tempo riding, the Ridgeway gives you plenty to get your teeth into. The route keeps you high up and offers continuous sweeping views, with just enough dips and diversions along the ridge to keep your climbing / descending muscles ticking over! The surface only occasionally gets semi-technical, leaving you with 100km of very rideable trail to enjoy! It’s a ride that invites you to open up your engines, and test how long you can keep them running!
Two course options, choose from 100km or 100 miles.
Fees: From £33.15
Entry: Online via the RiderHQ website
