SRAMcc 200 and 100 Mile Ride – 2023

SRAMcc will be holding a 200 and 100 mile ride on 24th June 2023.

This page has been created to give you the details for the ride, including Strava routes and support/feeding options.


  • 200 miles – 5 Rivers at 5AM, probable finish time around midnight
  • 100 miles – 5 Rivers at 9AM, probable finish around teatime

Signup to ride on the signupgenius page. The group size and compositions posted may change depending on who and how many join in.


These Strava routes are the confirmed routes (the Southampton/Totton road works have all been completed. 

200 mile route

The 200 mile route is in two parts, to avoid confusion where the route goes back on itself. You will need to have both routes on your device, and load part two at Eling tide mile for the final 25 miles.

  • Start (5 Rivers) to Eling tide mill (175 miles)

  • Eling to Salisbury (25 miles)

If you don’t know the area the Totton Flyover route is confusing. Just after you pass under the flyover bridge look to your left, and there will be a narrow, half-overgrown path leading up onto the flyover. Go up that, turn left and go on for about half a mile, and then drop down into Eling on a similar narrow path.

100 mile route

We have created a YouTube video which describes both routes, to help you plan pacing and eating strategies.


The ride is self-supported, so you will need to sort yourself out for any mechanical issue, and take sufficient tools and equipment for a long ride.

Most of the ride will also be self-supported for nutrition, so you can make your own choices about food etc depending on how you feel on the day. But SRAMcc will provide two support options for the 200 mile ride.

  • Breakfast at Cafe Velo, Ringwood at 30 miles in (Breakfast baguette with egg/bacon/sausage, with tea/coffee for £8 – pay the cafe on the day). Staff will be there from about 6.40 for hot drinks and will aim to have hot food ready by 7AM. Contact Simon for food allergies etc.
  • A support point at Eling Tide Mill at 175 miles in, with drinks and snacks. 

There are a lot of cafes and shops on the route. These are the ones we know about. If you can  think of others let us know. Note that some cafes may not be open into the evening.
