This year's Taunton Flyer Sportive (the 9th edition) will be taking place from Smeatharpe Airfield near Honiton.

This popular early season sportive offers a mixture of open, flowing, flat roads combined with a couple of testing climbs in the Blackdown Hills (an area of outstanding natural beauty). 

The Taunton Flyer offers you a choice of three routes, the Spitfire (37 miles), the Dakota (63 miles) or the Wellington (101 miles). All routes are fully signed and supported with quality feed stations, outriders, mechanics and medics.

The sportive includes electronic chip timing providing you with an official completion time, plus a finishers medal.
