English Heritage have created their very own Stonehenge Cycle Challenge, tracing the route of the Stonehenge bluestones from Wales to Wiltshire. In September 2013, English Heritage members will be able to take part in this exclusive sponsored challenge.

The cycle will take place over three days, from 13th September – 15th September 2013. This challenge is aimed at keen cyclists with an interest in history.
 
Throughout the challenge, cyclists will be able to experience scenic Welsh and English countryside, starting Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire National Park and end inside the dramatic Stonehenge circle itself, complete with a celebratory glass of champagne.
 
The challenge is in aid of raising money in order to carry on making improvements to the unique landscape that surrounds Stonehenge. English Heritage wish to restore the area to its original setting. Their ambitious plan include the removal of the car park and facilities, building a new visitors centre a mile and a half away and the closure of a section of the A344.
