Welcome to the 2023 installment!


We're a local cycling club and not a commercial operator.  We put a lot of time and attention planning these routes to make sure that you have an amazing day out that's excellent value for your money.
The Blinder is for Road Bikes

The Grinder is a mixed surface route suitable for Gravel or Mountain Bikes

It's the same entry fee for both events, they share the start, feed stations and the post event food and drink.  

You just have to choose which bike to bring!

Portishead Cycling Club proudly presents

The Peaky Blinder

The road route features the Mendip Man Strava art or just his head if you chose the shorter option.  There are some stiff climbs and quality descents if you chose the full loop or an easier flatter course on the shorter head and shoulders option.

The Cheeky Grinder

A challenging loop out from Portishead to Cheddar and back.  There's almost too many highlights to note!  We'll leave it at Bourton Combe, Dundry, Cadbury Camp, Felton, the Bridleways of Blagdon, Velvet Bottom, Rowbarrow tracks, Beacon Batch.  

Shorter options are available

The Feedstations

Proper cakes, snacks, treats and sweets

You will not be disappointed!
