For thousands of years our ancestors came together in their tribes and communities to celebrate the longest day of of the year, the Summer Solstice. Journeying far and wide, they would participate in rituals, play games, hold competitions, tell stories and share in celebrations, they would socialise with old friends, whilst also forging new friendships.

The Solstice Sprint provides the opportunity to celebrate the Solstice once more. Built on three principles; Adventure, Competition and Community, riders will race a 1000KM fixed route through the South West of England and across Wales, but not before coming together for the pre-race celebration dinner.

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.
