A legendary route, steeped in history... 

In October 1805 the Battle of Trafalgar took place, following which news of the British Navy victory, as well as the death of Admiral Lord Nelson needed to be sent to the Admiralty, London. Lieutenant John Richards Lapenotière was handed despatches and ordered to deliver them to the Admiralty as soon as possible. When his ship landed just off the coast of Falmouth, so would begin his epic 37 hour journey post chaise (via a horse drawn coach) to London. Over 200 years later riders will closely follow that journey, but on their bikes! All of our rides are named after ships that were at The Battle of Trafalgar.

Ride the Trafalgar Way is an A-B route, divided into three series; 100 Series, 200 Series, 300 Series. Start locations are Falmouth, Exeter, Salisbury. For those riding the whole route, a 24 hour challenge. New for 2017 is our Circular Series starting and finishing in Falmouth.
