A 2 day ride from Bristol to Hayling with an overnight stop in Salisbury

We are pleased to announce details of this year’s Channel to Channel event which is taking place over the weekend 14th/15th May 2016.

Riders will need to organise their own way to Bristol on the Friday. There is a direct train to Bristol from the Portsmouth area. Your bike can be transported if required in one of our support vans. You will stay in Bristol City Centre which has many restaurants and pubs within walking distance.

The ride starts from Bristol on the Saturday morning and we ride approx. 60 miles to Salisbury via the dedicated cycle track between Bristol and Bath and then using the iconic Bath Two tunnels route. After an overnight stop in Salisbury (again, in the centre of town) we ride approx. 50 miles where the event finishes on Hayling Island.

The cost for the weekend is £130 which includes 2 nights B&B and support services (including bike transportation on the Friday and your luggage carried on the Saturday and Sunday) as well as support on route.
