Tour De Somerset - results!

Our Tour de Somerset challenge has now come to an end for another year.

And with the help of district colleagues this year’s participants have really notched things up a gear, smashing our target with a collective total of 7,903 miles! That’s 30 laps of Somerset. And a collective total of 323,885 feet elevation – the equivalent of cycling up to Dunkery Beacon (Somerset’s highest point above sea level) 191 times.

A big thank you and well done to all who got involved!

Congratulations to Somerset County Council's Clive Franklin who sped to the top of the leader board in the final week and snatched the yellow jersey for this year, with a whopping 906 miles covered in July! Congratulations also to South Somerset District Council's Robert Orrett who claims this year’s ‘King of the Mountains’ jersey having climbed 76,063 feet, and our Queen of the Mountains, Somerset County Council's Sam Fox, who climbed 23,859 feet.
