For the last few years we have run a Charity Bike Ride, last year it was the GR300 and before that it was the GR20.
This years ride will take riders from Cheddar Gorge near Bristol South to Lands End. It is a four day ride with all accommodation and vehicle support provided. After a long marketing meeting, we’ve come up with the name “GR4“.

The Route: will be around 250 miles over 4 days, starting in Cheddar Gorge near Bristol and finishing at Lands End. 4 days, 4 counties, 400+ km.
