The Brean Hundred 2020
May 23 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm
Ladies and Gentleman of our parish, the time has come to take part in a legendary event.
The Brean Hundred is a simply a ride, to Brean, that is over 100 miles long, and ends at the seaside residence of our esteemed club member Mr Paul Hardiman.
This year there is a slight change to the proceedings. There will be two groups, one steady, one swift, with different start times. This should enable us all to reach Brean at a similar time and enjoy the challenge.
The Steady group will assemble at the Viaduct Tavern (see map) for a grand depart at 7:30am. The target pace will be 13-15mph. The route is relatively flat for the most part so it should be easy to keep this pace in a group.
The Swift group will again assemble at the Viaduct Tavern for departure at 8:30 am. Target pace will be 16-18mph. Faster averages have been recorded on the first section to Gloucester and riding at a pace in a group saves energy.
The route is planned in three sections. Kidderminster to Gloucester, where we stop for food and supplies at a Tesco supermarket on the route. Gloucester to Bristol. We usually stop near Blaise Castle to feed and restock before leg 3 Bristol to Brean.
Weather being kind we will fire up the BBQ and enjoy the post ride banter before camping out or heading home.
There are options for leaving a vehicle at Brean ready for your return. This is usually done in the days prior to the event which gives riders a trouble free return leg. There will be a group chat set up for interested participants to arrange lifts, luggage and returns.
We’d love to have you along in whichever group you think suitable, maybe you could smash that 100 mile target, you won’t find a much flatter route.
