Coast to Coast is an annual cycle challenge organised by Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. It is a charity fundraising event, raising vital funds to help critically ill or injured patients.

The event is a challenging cycle ride that starts at Watchet Harbour in Somerset and ends at West Bay on the South coast of Dorset. The challenge follows a scenic route through the beautiful Somerset and Dorset countryside, with a mixture of quiet back roads, demanding climbs and hairy descents.

The charity is asking anyone who is fortunate enough to gain a place, to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship.

The event is closed.


Our annual cycle challenge has a maximum participation of 600 cyclists and two different distances:

  • 55-mile route - Watchet to West Bay
  • 11-mile route - Drimpton to West Bay

There are various pit stops along the route for cyclists to grab refreshments. The pit stops are also safe areas for friends and family members to show their support.

With the support of West Somerset and West Dorset District Councils, Avon & Somerset and Dorset Police we pride ourselves on offering an event which is registered and insured with British Cycling.
