It’s never too late in the year to fit in a good sportive and the GTC Screamer packs in a huge amount in its 84miles – from the reed lined moorland lanes, to the grandeur of Cheddar Gorge, to Glastonbury Tor, the history of Wells Cathedral and the pre-history of Iron Age Ham Hill.
Starting just outside the picturesque village of South Petherton in Somerset, at GTC Headquarters, registration begins at 7.30am. Grand Tour Cycling will supply support vehicles on the course, riding leaders in attendance on the course, and two feed stations. Riders will be timed on the course, and event timings will be published on the web on completion of the event. Waymarking is ‘careful and copious’ – so it should give you ample opportunity to savour the views, and those climbs without getting lost. This ride takes in one big climb up the infamous Cheddar Gorge.
Entry to the GTC Screamer is £25 with full details at grandtourcycling.co.uk
