The Mendips Classic

Saturday 17th July 2021 | Strode College Sport Centre

Our Classic Series is designed with all riders in mind. With four routes to choose from and nothing too technical we would love to see as many riders joining us for one of our Classic events as possible.  

Our Mendips Classic routes pick up parts of UKCE rides in times gone by and is a location that is a firm favourite amongst our riders. There’ll be a variety of routes on offer so you can challenge yourself with some tough climbs or opt for a slightly shorter route. Whatever you choose it will be a fantastic day out on the bike.

Of course you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal, beer from Freedom Brewery and other goodies from our partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and OTE sports. We look forward to seeing you in June and remember with four different routes to choose from, there's something for everyone!
