The Great Tour, Clovelly - August 2011

Witness a host of intrepid cyclists rattling down the cobbles of Clovelly! This endurance cycling challenge, in aid of Prostate Cancer Charity and Caravan, the National Grocers Benevolent fund, will be circumnavigating the entire coastline of Britain from July until September. This particular leg of the journey from Selworthy, North Somerset to Clovelly, North Devon is one of the most arduous; 56 miles, with two valleys to negotiate on Exmoor.  Subject to weather, the most resolute of the cyclists will finish this gruelling day's journey with an off-road cycle along Clovelly's Hobby Drive followed by a bone-shaking ride down the cobbles to the harbour, where they will be welcomed by Clovelly's owner, The Hon. John Rous. Everyone is invited to join in this colourful and inspirational sporting celebration of the British coastline.
