With the success of our 2017 Shop to Shop Cycle Challenge, our new ‘Great Dorset Cycle Challenge‘ on Saturday 22nd September 2018 takes in some of Dorset’s famous landmarks and beauty spots; including Maiden Castle, Stoke Abbott, Lyme Regis and the Cerne Abbas Giant.

Please note the date has changed to Saturday 22nd September 2018 

Three open road routes to choose from, ranging in distance and endurance, all starting in Dorchester near The Keep and following routes around the Dorset countryside – joining back together for a group finish in Dorchester:

Great Dorset Cycle Challenge Route 1 Cog50km – 60km

  • Registration Fee £20
  • £80 minimum sponsorship


Great Dorset Cycle Challenge Route 2 Cog80km – 90km

  • Registration fee £30
  • £80 minimum sponsorship


Great Dorset Cycle Challenge Route 3 Cog120km

  • Registration Fee £45
  • With this route the sponsorship is optional, however we would encourage that cyclists raise money for Weldmar and full fundraising support will be provided.

Registration includes the cost of administering this amazing ride, a personalised sponsorship pack, fuel stations, finisher’s medal and celebratory drinks.

Weldmar Great Dorset cycling jerseys will be available to purchase prior to the event.

Please note the date has changed to Saturday 22nd September 2018 


If you are unable to participate in the Great Dorset Cycle Challenge but would like to be involved, why not consider volunteering? We are in need of both registration volunteers and marshals to ensure the event is safe and that participants are following the correct route. All volunteers will receive refreshments and a volunteer goodie bag. In addition, marshals will receive complimentary ‘cheer items’ for their station.
