The History

The Tour of Wessex is a challenge that's about pushing yourself to be better. When you try to compete against others, you set yourself up to fail. But when you compete against yourself and strive to improve, that's a challenge you have control over and can conquer.

The Tour of Wessex has been held annually since 2006, and it was the first event of its kind in the UK. The multi-day sportive format made it a favorite among cyclists from across the world, but after 17 years the organisers decided it was time to get outside the comfort zone.

The Tour of Wessex  Challenge retains many of the roads used in the origional cyclosportive, as well as offering similar distance options. However, the new format will be devilishly challenging and push participants to the limits of their cycling capacity.

We're excited to see as many people as possible step out of their comfort zone and take on this challenge.

“The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar, safe, at ease, and secure.

If you always do what is easy and choose the path of least resistance, you never step outside your comfort zone. Great things don’t come from comfort zones.” ― Roy T. Bennett,
