to the Great Weston Ride!
2021 was the twelfth outing for the GWR and it's fair to say that it's another one that we won't forget in a hurry, this time due to some really warm conditions that added an extra level of challenge for everyone.
Nevertheless, with a spectacular route, lots of amazing support, and a whole bunch of lovely people on bikes it all actually added up to another fabulous day out - one that we were both relieved AND delighted to be able to deliver safely and successfully.
The fantastic weather allowed riders to enjoy some really spectacular sights & views along the way, and it was clear from most riders' reactions at the finish line that they had a great day out and felt an even bigger sense of achievement at having risen to the challenge on such a hot day.
So we'd really like to say an extra-special thank you - and huge congratulations - to everyone who took part, including all the friends and family who came along to support the riders and cheer everyone safely across the finish line.
We'd also like to thank our wonderful Event Partners and, in particular, the marvellous support team who helped us to put on such a successful and enjoyable event in such challenging conditions - the mechanics, medics, marshals, service providers, refreshment stops, and other helpers who all contributed considerable time and effort too. They're simply superstars.
So, with its eight route options and a really strong support team, we believe that the GWR delivered again on its promise to give everyone a really good physical challenge AND a great day out, and plans will be underway very soon for a repeat performance in 2022 - and hopefully with a bit more 'normality' around it too.
In the meantime, if you'd like to know more about the GWR please just explore the website - it should tell you all you need to know, and the comments from previous participants are always well worth a look.
