Event Information

Description:

This year Audax Club Parisien celebrates 100 years since the first 300km BRM event. 50 special edition medals will be available with this event to commemorate it.

Straight to the coast at Lulworth Cove; a couple of hills along the way to keep the BPM high but otherwise a flowing route. Cross the Isle of Purbeck passing Corfe Castle, then some gravel across Studland Heath to the Sandbanks Ferry to skirt back round Poole Harbour to The Quay. Luxury Sunseekers adorn the far side. Use an old Roman road to Wimborne Minster, then shortly after a bit more gravel as you head across Cranborne Chase. Hop over a few of Salisbury’s river valleys for afternoon tea at Ginny’s Cafe in the Wylye Valley. Cross Salisbury Plain to Devizes and The Crammer, home of the Moonrakers; you may see a setting moon as the full moon is in a few days just after midday. Then over the Wessex Ridge before heading back to Bristol.

details:

The start is easily accessible from Bristol on bike via the Railway Path. The small free car park at Warmley Station is now short stay only.

Sandbanks Ferry – £1.00 CASH

Caution: Several paths and tracks are used along the route, some are shared, some are byways, some bridleways; surfaces vary from metalled on the shared paths through to gravel. It is all worth it but being an advisory route you are welcome to route round.
