The Ridgeway Returns!

Sept 11th 2021

The Ridgeway 100 returns! This fantastic kilometre century features an out and back format, using the very best riding on the magnificent ridge! Starting and finishing in the same place, there’s no return transport worries too!

107, 86 & 48km options!

Fancy a great ride without going the full 100km? We’ve added a shorter Ridgeway 50 (48km) option, and an 86km ride too! There really is a ride for everyone on the Ridgeway 100!

Ride 107k on the Ridgeway in a day!

 (or pick the 48km or NEW 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!)

Chilton School, Downside, Chilton, Didcot OX11 0PQ

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!

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.
