To the Great Weston Ride!
2020 was the eleventh outing for the GWR and it's fair to say that it's one that we won't forget in a hurry, due to the protracted COVID situation and all its implications.
However, with a spectacular route, very decent weather, 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.
Some fantastic September 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 a huge sense of achievement at having risen to the challenge that the GWR presents.
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 them safely across the finish line in a very COVID-secure fashion.
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 very 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 2021 - just 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.

2020 GWR UPDATE
We're pleased to say that the official professional photos from the 2020 GWR are now available to view. Below is just ONE great example, and please just click on the photo to take you to the photographer's website where you can see the rest of the official images online!
We can't guarantee that everyone was captured but if you enter you three-digit rider number in the box on the top right you'll be able to check to see any photos that were taken (provided that you displayed your rider number properly & clearly on the front of your bike!) and hopefully you'll see something in there that you like! :)
