Chase The Sun Bike Ride
22nd June 2019
This is a endurance bike ride. Its a RIDE, not a RACE. From the sea wall at Minster - on - Sea to the Jetty at Burnham on Sea in Somerset, (approximately 205 miles). The idea is to set off at sunrise on the longest Saturday of the year and try and make it to the jetty at Burnham on Sea before the sun sets, (about 17 hours later). The ride is hard, but achievable to those that train for it. We have had all sorts of bikes take part and complete the ride, including a Fat Bike, a tandem, mountain bikes and a couple of Fixies.
The ride is free to enter. It is unsupported, so you have to look after your self or sort out your own supplies along the route, (most just stop at bike shops along the route for refils for their bidons, coffee, cakes etc). The event started with just 3 riders in 2008, we now have over 1000 registered riders for 2019.
