Somerset Road Club is hosting a monthly Segment Challenge for the first time this year. Over a period of 8 months from March to October riders will be facing a mix of flat, rolling and climbing stages to test themselves.
Each month a new segment will be released with the simple aim for club members to produce the fastest time possible, while riding safely.
Overall leaderboards are created for the General Classification (GC), King and Queen of the Mountain (KOM/QOM), and Sprint competitions.
A members position in the stage leaderboard at the end of the stage contributes to their overall point scoring.
The overall winner (male and female) is determined by whoever accumulates the most points by the end of the challenge.
We will try and provide a mix of flat, undulating and climbing challenges over the 8 months, readily accessible from both Taunton and Bridgwater.
Challenge Guidance and Rules:
The challenge is open to member of Somerset Road Club.
You may ride the segment as may times as you like during the month.
All bikes are allowed with the exception of TT bikes, bikes with aero bar extensions and e-bikes.
You can ride the segment solo or within an SRC organised club ride. By all means ride to the segment with others, however unless it’s an SRC organised club ride, please leave a time gap between yourself and other riders.
Enjoy riding the segments, but do so safety and don’t take any unnecessary risks. As always, show due consideration and respect to other road users.
Activities included in the challenge are based on each athlete's local time zone.
All activities logged during the challenge period must be uploaded to Strava no later than three days after a stage ends.
This challenge is organised by Somerset Road Club Members and only members may join.
