Spitfire Route

The Taunton Flyer 'Spitfire' route starts and finishes at Smeatharpe (near Honiton). It covers a total distance of approximately 37 miles (60 km) with 2500 ft (750 m) of climbing. This is the shortest route option, perfect for anyone new to Sportive cycling. This route starts from RAF Upottery Airfield (Smeatharpe) and will take you past the Heritage Centre and RAF Culmhead (Now a Business Centre) before decending from the Blackdown Hills to Taunton. Here you split from the longer Wellington Route to head back into the Blackdown Hills through Corfe and Hemyock to reach Dunkeswell Airfield. From here you will have a nice flat ride to the finish back at Smeatharpe Airfield.

For 2021, All participants who complete this route will receive our BRONZE Finishers Medal.
