In the ancient tapestry of our shared human history, the Summer Solstice emerges as a sacred thread, weaving itself through countless generations. A timeless celebration, echoing the footsteps of our ancestors who,  converged in their tribes and communities to honour the sun's zenith.


Our ancestors traversed distant lands, kindling fires of camaraderie through rituals, revelry, and the spirit of competition. Amidst the joyous dance of the longest day, old bonds were strengthened, and new bonds were forged. Today, we invite you to embrace this enduring tradition, to pedal through time and terrain, creating your own chapter in the age-old saga of the Summer Solstice celebration.

Guided by the pillars of Adventure, Competition, and Community, participants will embark on a 1000KM journey through a kaleidoscope of landscapes in the South West of England and across Wales. Before the race begins, unite with fellow riders at the pre-race celebration dinner, setting the stage for an unforgettable experience.

The long days and mild weather create the perfect conditions for riders to prove themselves in the one of the earliest races of the calendar, setting the tone for what is to come later in the season.

Our 2024 route has been described as a medley of brutal climbs and beautiful vistas, visiting areas including; the Cotswolds, North Wessex Downs, Wye Valley, Eryri National Park, The Great Orme and the Shropshire Hills.
