Unfortunately we have had to cancel the Wiltshire 100 and Big Wheel events. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused, but we are making plans to bring the event back next year.

A fantastic late summer ride through the harvest-time Wessex landscape

The 45 mile route follows the Avon Valley through some stunning villages to the Vale of Pewsey before heading through Savernake Forest to the historic market town of Marlborough. With a final climb up over the Ridgeway, the route drops back into the Vale of Pewsey to the Finish. The 12 mile family route takes a gentler route looping to the east of Devizes with a lunch stop at All Cannings.
