This 70 mile event will be run on 10 laps of the SW136 Nicholashayne Course.  This is a great course on the Devon / Somerset border, with the HQ in Uffculme.  The course takes in a mix of technical lanes, fast downhills and the long White Ball climb out of Somerset on the A38.  This National B event will be open to E/1/2/3 licence riders. 

Peter Sandy passed away at the age of 87, on 13 June 2017.  He was president of Somerset Road Club for many years, having revived the struggling club 40 years ago.

A popular figure, he was a successful racer in the South West and beyond. He had top six finishes in almost 100 races between 1977 and 1987.

Peter was an inspiration to so many riders throughout the years, both young and old.  He will be sadly missed for his passion for cycling and the many racing stories that he told at our cafe stops.
