Somerset Hills Gran Fondo News

The Cheddar team are pleased to announce that we shall be doing it all again for 2015. The date is May 3rd 2015.

We take all your comments and address them to improve our event for the following year. I know lots of you who have ridden with us before, and I know you realise we respond to this because you have recognised the improvements and reminded us in your emails and through remarks on social media. All your positive feed back is considered and put in to the mix with our own post mortem to make positive changes for 2015. And yes there will be more sausage rolls!!

Sue, Pete and I have to start by thanking our regular crew who make this event worth running; it is their efforts and exceptional help that continue to make our event one of the best in the calendar. Just make sure you get it in your calendar for May 3rd next year “or else”. Ta.

Again this year we enjoyed fantastic weather. That in itself underlines a great event. Participants always enjoy the experience when the sun is on their backs and not the rain and drizzle of previous months. Those riders on the Gran and Medio sportive actually rode their bikes where weeks earlier there was nearly 2 meters of water. I can confirm you will not need your water wings next year!! Mr Cameron said so!!

On a serious note, thank you for all compliments. We like that, and we seriously take on board all you say. We aim to provide the best riding experience we can in our county. It is important we get the signage right, stock the feed stations appropriately, provide tech cover, create seamless logistics and do a deal with “who ever” to get the weather sorted.

Please keep a constant eye on our website for our dates and information about 2015. We shall be offering some enter early incentives and any positive changes for our next event. I realise you are absolutely desperate to conquer Crowcombe climb again!!

Finally a big thank you to all that worked on the Sportive and all that enjoyed the riding experience with us. See you next year. Keep training.
