The 200 mile route offers cyclists the ability to take a place in an “ultra-event” – the ride is supported and guided by Salisbury Road and Mountain Cycle Club. SSIT will, as in previous years, provide breakfast, lunch and supper as well as two further breaks. The ride has an enviable reputation and a genuine ultimate challenge.

The aim of all the rides is for riders to enjoy themselves, this is not a Race.

Through sponsorship raised from the 2018 Big Bike Challenge enabled SSIT to support a number of individuals living in the region with hand bikes & other specialist equipment, which was a great achievement.
