The newly added 100km route brings a few extra challenges to the Tour de Bristol. This route is for more experienced riders as two of the most iconic yet rewarding climbs of the area will be on the program for 2017. The ride takes you into North Somerset following the coast and across moorland. You will climb up to the beautiful rises of Burrington Combe before entering the fast and well flowing section on top of the Mendips. After a descend into Cheddar and a cruise through the town the most impressive climb of the all - Cheddar Gorge - opens up to the rider. First demanding but getting faster and faster nearer the top, the Gorge is to be enjoyed to its fullest. After another fast section across the top of the Mendips, some fantastic views over Chew Valley and Blagdon Lake open up before the route drops back to the edge of Blagdon Lake. The 100K route joins the 50K route at Felton at the final feed station at 89Km.
