Priddy Road Circuit

Category: Medium

Undulating with a Moorland Feel

The Priddy circuit is situated at the top of the Mendip hills not that far south of Bristol. It is often used for early season road races with the Bristol South Women’s race and the Junior Tour of the Mendips being two races regularly held on it.

The circuit is mildly undulating. Not hilly but not entirely flat, however what can make it hard is the wind. For those that know the area, it is a 7 mile loop on the B roads at the top of Cheddar Gorge and Burrington Combe. So if the wind is blowing the circuit, at some points the circuit will be exposed. That said, the Priddy Circuit is a good one for people new to racing on the open roads. it is not too technical and at nearly all points you can see where the race is heading. Also, there is generally little traffic on these roads.

Headquarters are sometimes in Priddy village hall: BA5 3BE Or in the the villages near Chew Valley lake.
