Hero Ride West
Hero Ride West originates in Plymouth and is a leisurely 5-day cruise through Dartmoor National Park and the irresistable surrounding countryside.
You'll pass through Wiltshire, Hampshire and Surrey as you pick up 'West 100-ers' and 'West 100 Sportivers' on the way, The 'West 100 Sportive' is our upgraded Dawn Raid from 2014's Hero Ride, where you sprint through the dead of night from our Help for Heroes Recovery Centre, Tedworth House.
Then, for the last 50 miles, our 'West 50' riders will be snatched up by the rest of the pack and carried - not literally - onto Windsor as part of one of the easier Hero Ride routes we have to offer.
The Dawn Raid is back by popular demand, coming to you this year as the Hero West 100 Sportive. Charge through the night from Tedworth House Recovery Centre, joined by some of the wounded, injured and sick who will be keen to demonstrate how far they’ve come on their road to recovery. You’ll retrace the route of the London 2012 Olympic Road Race as you sprint up Box Hill and then it’s on to Windsor for the grand finale.
