Last Chance to Register for Air Ambulance Cycle Challenge

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is holding its annual Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge on Saturday 18th May 2024 and is encouraging those who wish to take part, to sign up before online registration closes at midnight on Sunday 12th May.

The ever-popular event has two routes available to choose from; a 55-mile route which starts at Watchet Harbour in Somerset at 10.30am and finishes in the Dorset seaside resort of West Bay and a shorter 11-mile route, which starts at the Royal Oak public house in Drimpton at 2.00pm, which also finishes in West Bay.

With a mixture of quiet back roads, interspersed with some very demanding climbs and equally hairy descents, the event has something to offer for everyone! There are several pit-stops along the route, which provide a well-earned rest and refreshments for those who want it. The charity hopes that the public will come out in support of those taking part, cheering on the cyclists at the start, along the route or at the finish line.

As ever, there are only 600 places available. Participants can enter as an individual or as a team and the charity is asking anyone fortunate enough to gain a place, to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship.

Alana Hardy, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Fundraising Officer said:

“With only two weeks to go, places for this year’s Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge are really filling up. It’s our 13th year in the saddle, so be sure not to miss out on what will be another
fantastic day; the atmosphere is amazing and the event brings people from across the two counties we serve together, whilst raising much-needed funds for our life-saving service.”

Entrance fees are:

  • 11-mile route: Adults (£20) & Under 16′s (£10).
  • 55-mile route: Adults (£40) & Under 16′s (£20).
