Wedmore 40/30

July 11 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Wedmore 40/30 cycle event is set to take place on Sunday 11 July 2021, starting at the Post & Wicket in Wedmore (BS28 4BS)

The exciting cycling challenge sees bike enthusiasts take on a breathtaking 30, 40 or 70 mile course across the spectacular Mendip Hills and Somerset levels. There is also a fun, family-friendly 12 mile course which returns by popular demand.

Weston Hospicecare is working in collaboration with a brilliant group of cycling enthusiast volunteers from Wedmore to bring this event to you and money raised through ticket sales will be split between Weston Hospicecare and St Mary’s Church. All funds raised through sponsorship and donations will go directly to supporting the care the hospice provides for free to those in North Somerset and Sedgemoor with life-limiting conditions.

There is a range of route lengths you can choose from:

  • 12 miles: ‘Family Fun Ride’: this shorter fun ride is ideal for a range of abilities; a short, mainly flat route around the Somerset Levels. Ride starts at 10:30am
  • 30 miles: ‘Ride the Levels’: you will head south of Wedmore towards Glastonbury, taking in views of the beautiful Somerset Levels. Ride starts at 10am
  • 40 miles: ‘The Hill Climber’: ride up the iconic Cheddar Gorge, across the spectacular Mendip Hills and around Chew Valley Lake before venturing back over the Mendips to Wedmore. Ride starts at 9:30am
  • 70 miles: ‘The Full House’: first you will ride 40 miles across the Mendips and round Chew Valley Lake. Back to Wedmore for a quick refuel, before finishing with a slightly flatter 30 miles around the Somerset Levels. Ride starts at 9am


  • Entry to Wedmore 40/30 on Sunday 11 July 2021
  • Complementary refreshments at the finish
  • Full safety cover of the event
  • Finisher’s medal to show off your achievement
  • Bike maintenance at the start and finish

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
