This ride has now passed.
Thanks to all the riders who took part in the Wiltshire 100 / Big Wheel bike ride on Sunday to raise money for their chosen charities. It was great cycling weather, and a great success with nearly 500 riders taking part! The pictures from the ride are available here:
"Awesome, 100 miles done on a well organized event thanks to the team" S. S.
"On my doorstep, thought it would be rude not to ride the 100. The section through the Wylye valley is stunning." R. M.
"We made it.....what a ride!!" S. A.Come along and cycle for the charity of your choice on this heroic 100 mile ride through Wiltshire!
Setting off to the west the route joins the Wylye valley to coast into Wilton, the ancient capital of Wessex then on to Salisbury and its cathedral. Watch out for the optical illusion as you approach - the spire actually gets smaller the closer you get to it! Then it's up the Avon Valley through some stunning villages to the Vale of Pewsey before heading through Savernake Forest to the historic market town of Marlborough. With a final climb up over the ridgeway the route drops back into the Vale of Pewsey to the Finish.
