Sunday April 9th April 2017 - 00:00

The ride attracts well over 100 cyclists, and takes you through some fantastic coastal and rural scenery, visiting Lulworth Cove, Weymouth, Abbotsbury and Dorchester, including two cafes providing cyclists fare. This year is the 40th anniversary of the event. The ride is challenging, with several major hills; don't worry, there are some flat sections too! Although challenging, the ride is achievable and studying the route beforehand will help. There is ample parking near the start, and hot food at the end.
