Welcome to the 2014 Great Weston Ride, a fabulous 56-mile challenge bike ride from Bristol to Weston-super-Mare that follows a spectacular route through the Mendips and across the Somerset Levels.






20th JULY 2014



The fifth Great Weston Ride took place on Sunday 20th July 2014 under very sunny skies (yet again!) and more people than ever were involved, either as Ride participants or as supporters on the day - making it certainly the biggest (and probably the best) GWR yet!

We had over 1,000 people take part in the 2014 Great Weston Ride, with many hundreds more welcoming and cheering all the riders across the finish line, and it was just a fantastic day out.

Naturally, we want to thank all those lovely people (riders AND supporters), and we'd also like to say a massive THANK YOU to the small army of very friendly and dedicated people who helped us to put on such a successful and enjoyable event - the marshals, medics, mechanics, helpers, service providers, and other partners who all contributed so much time and effort and without whom we simply couldn't do this!

We enjoyed the day so much that we ARE going to do it all over again in 2015 and more info will follow, and in the meantime we'll post further news and pictures here about the 2014 Ride as we get them.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed so much this year - it is VERY much appreciated!
