Ridgeway 100: The Century to the Stones

Ridgeway 100: The Century to the Stones

August 04 2018
Oxfordshire, South East, UK

The Ridgeway Returns in 2018! The Ridgeway 100 is back with a new out and back format! The Century to the Stones was a great ride in 2017, but for next year we're making it bigger and better, and making your life simpler in the process.

The 2018 Ridgeway 100: Return of the Stones will feature an out and back format from the event base to the standing stones at Avebury, starting and finishing in the same place. That means a bigger and better ride (107km, concentrating the true, classic end of the Ridgeway), and no need for you to book return transport; you'll finish up right back where you started!

The Ridgeway is Europe’s oldest continually used highway – dating back thousands of years, this was a prehistorically important route, with many ancient landmarks along it’s length, and ending at the magnificent stone circles of Avebury (which predates Stonehenge by some 700 years!)

Today, the Ridgeway remains a popular recreational route, and a fantastic long distance MTB trail! Fast paced and perfect for tempo riding, the Ridgeway gives you plenty to get your teeth into. The route keeps you high up and offers continuous sweeping views, with just enough dips and diversions along the ridge to keep your climbing / descending muscles ticking over! The surface only occasionally gets semi-technical, leaving you with 100km of very rideable trail to enjoy! It’s a ride that invites you to open up your engines, and test how long you can keep them running!

And we make sure that all you have to think about is riding. The Trail Break Team have over 20 years experience running long distance MTB challenges, and detailed knowledge of the Ridgeway itself. The Ridgeway 100 Century to the Stones is fully supported, from route marking to multiple feed and support stops, so all you have to do is concentrate on taking on this epic ride!
