SWOF cycling challenges
Whether you're speediest on or off road, if you're happiest when you're on 2 wheels then SWOF has a challenge for you this year.
Description: Bikers of a feather flock together, and the Mendip Murmuration mixed-terrain MTB sportive event is set to prove that, as riders explore a challenging new route around Cheddar’s hills and lanes, and along the sensational singletrack that spiders across beautiful Black Down and flows into the fantastic forest playground of Rowberrow Warren. The main course is 32km (20 miles), but an optional extra loop will take more adventurous riders long an additional 16km (10 miles) of cracking terrain that loops lovely Crook Peak and traces more of the magical Mendip Way.
