The History

The Tour of Wessex is a challenge that is about pushing yourself to be better. When you compete against others, only one person can win. 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 multi-day sportive in the UK making it a favorite among cyclists from across the world. In 2024 a new format was introduced offering a new but equally challenging experince that visits many of the roads used in the origional event. 

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,
