WEDMORE is gearing up for a repeat of last year’s 40 30 cycle.

The Wedmore 40 30 returns for a second time and once again entrants can choose from a selection of four routes: 12, 30, 40 and 70 miles.

The 12-mile route is a fun ride, the 30-mile cycle is a short ride across the Somerset Levels, the 40-mile route is across the Mendips while the 70-mile route incorporates both the Mendips and the Levels.

As the event is being held on Father’s Day, Sunday June 16, there is a special opportunity this year for any children aged 16 and under to register and cycle for free, as long as they are accompanied by an adult family member.

All routes start from Wedmore Playing Fields.

This year the organisers are pleased to be supported by their main sponsor Tout’s Budgens, with money raised for Weston Hospicecare and Friends of St Mary’s Church, Wedmore.
