A Trail Break MTB Event

Ride 107k on the Ridgeway in a day!

 (or pick the 48km or 86km route option!)

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 off road trail! Faster paced and less extreme than the South Downs Way, the Ridgeway is a fantastic gravel bike ride and 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. Our team have over 20 years experience running long distance off road 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!

Bike Suitability

Which bike will be best or this ride? The Wildwood is open to any bike and any rider – but here’s our guide to which type of bike suits this course best.


MTB or Gravel?

You can use either a MTB or gravel bike for any of our events; none of our rides are exclusively one or the other. Al lthat matters is that your bike is suitable for riding off road. The question of which bike you should choose is harder to answer, as it will vary from person to person and ride to ride, but we’ve tried to give yuo some guidance here. While our events ar open to any off road bike, each event may lean slightly more towards one than the other. So our MTB branded events will typically be shorter distances and may use some more rougher or more technical sections and places, while our Gravel branded events will generally be longer distances, with typically less technical surfaces involved. But the emphasis for all rides is off road – our Gravel events are not intended to be road rides with just a few bits of dirt track here and there; they are created to give you plenty of good, varied open hill riding. 

In our videos you’ll see us riding gravel bikes on most courses, regardless of whether it’s for a Gravel or MTB event, but really only because that’s our personal preference here in the Trail Break office these days. For individual riders though, that choice will vary. It will depend on your abilities and preferences; how happy you are to push the limits of where you can take a gravel bike for example, or whether you prefer to have the benefits of an MTB under you when the going gets rougher. The terrain, distance nd weather/ground conditions may make a difference too. We try and guide you as best we can – you’ll see here a guide showing a suitability rating for different kinds of bikes, plus a physical and technical severity rating for the courses, and we’re going too add that information for all events as we go into the new season. But at the end of the day, that is only a guide, and the best choice is going to be different for every rider.

  • Gravel / Adventure Bike 90% 90%
  • CX (race style cyclocross) 75% 75%
  • MTB 80% 80%
  • MTB (29er) 90% 90%

Cut off & bail out points

Your big target for Century to the Stones is to complete the challenge. This ride should be acheivable by most people within the time limits, however you will need to be aware of your pace, and listen to advice form our course marshals. There will be cut off times at the points on the route, after which riders may be transported forwards to catch up time or (if they have not yet reached the return point at Avebury) instructed to turn back early, at the event organisers discretion. In extreme circumstances, very slow riders who are far behind the event schedule may be refused further event support and required to make their own arrangements to complete or abandon the ride.

Friends and family support vehicles
A good number of riders will arrange for friends or family to support them along the route from their own vehicles, and to collect them at the end of the day. We welcome friends and family support vehicles on the event, however, we will need them to to observe our guidelines to help the event to run smoothly. We will provide details of recommended rendezvous points on the course, with suitable access and parking. There will also be certain roads on the course where we will ask vehicles not to attempt to access the course, due to road width or parking limitations. This information will be provided to you well in advance to allow you to plan.
On the ride

Once you’re ready to start, report to the start / finish area with your rider number on the front of your bike. Listen to the short briefing and set off as directed. As you go along the route, you will find bright orange signs and ribbons to follow. These should guide you around the whole route, but use a map or gps if you think you have strayed off course or have a problem with the route navigation. There will also be emergency contact numbers provided to you. Ride safely at all times, and remember that you are on public rights of way and roads. This is not a race, so please ride appropriately, and be friendly and polite to other trail users you meet. At the end of the ride, pass over the timing mat once again, and hand in your timing chip. For those interested in there ride time, these will be available on the computer screen at the finish.

Event support vehicles & mechanical assistance
Our support vehicles will be traveling along the route on the closest possible roads, and will be equipped to help with mechanical problems and basic first aid. However, please note that getting assistance to any point on the Ridgeway may involve considerable distances and can take a long time. Riders will be expected to carry basic tools and spares, and a small, basic first aid pack. Your first and best option is always to fix yourself if you can; if you can’t we’ll be there to help.
