Salisbury Plain Summer Epic
A glorious summer day on the amazing Salisbury Plain – the home of gravel riding in the South of England. With miles of fast, empty gravel tracks on MOD land and views of the rolling countryside, this is gravel riding at it’s best. NEW for summer 21, choose between a 100km or 70km route for a true summer gravel epic.
- DISTANCE: 70KM | ELEVATION: 899M
- RIDE DIFFICULTY 3/5
- TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY 2/5
- PERCENTAGE OF ROUTE OFF ROAD 89%
Bike & Tyre Choice: The route is almost all off road on fairly fast gravel. Absolutely not suitable for road bikes, mountain bikes will be fine but a bit slow so we strongly recommend a gravel bike with around 40mm tyres.
Thruxton: 70km, 899m
What a place to ride it is! Wide and smooth gravel roads with views across the plain from the high ground with a sighting of Stonehenge in the distance. The course is never quite flat so you will have earned your hot crossed bun at the end.
