The Action Medical Research Ride100 series welcomes a brand new route for 2015 in the shape of the Brunel Flyer. Formerly the Bath 100 the event has been refreshed and revamped for 2015 with a completely new and different route that takes in some of the best scenery on offer in the West Country. Setting out from Keynsham you’ll quickly find yourself on quiet roads and sections of the National Cycle network as you wind your way towards the coast. After skirting round Compton Bishop, and a quick blast through the Somerset Levels, you’ll then head up the iconic Cheddar Gorge in one of the most picturesque climbs the UK has to offer. After tackling the gorge, you are rewarded with a lunch stop and great views back down over Somerset.
On departing the lunch stop the route winds its way down Ebbor Gorge and once more heads into the Levels for some fast flat riding and views across to Glastonbury Tor and Brent Knoll. Passing through the Cathedral town of Wells, you will then climb up the Old Bristol road before plunging down towards Chew Valley Lake which lies below. After flying past the lake, the route takes quiet and scenic roads back into Keynsham passing the historic Compton Dando Hall and Chewton Place.
With varied scenery, quiet roads and lovely climbs the Brunel Flyer is an event not to be missed!
