Mountain Bike Event on Exmoor - 2 May 2016

The route will start and end in the picturesque Exmoor Town of Dulverton.  There will be two routes. The endurance event runs over 23 miles and is open to all fit and experienced riders over 18 years old.  The second route covers 15 miles and is open to all adults, 16-18 year olds, and 14-16 years olds if accompanied by an adult.


The route will pass through the stunning scenery that marks the River Barle up to the ancient stone clapper bridge at Tarr Steps.  From there the route will climb up to the moorland from where far reaching views can be seen in all directions.  From the moor the route heads south east to the river Exe and then leads back into Dulverton for the finish line.   Riders have a unique opportunity to pass over land that is not open to the general public.  We are grateful to the Hollam and Broford Estates for allowing access.

The cost of entry is £15. In addition there is a £2 processing fee that is retained by British Cycling.  All of the entry money will go to the work of Calvert Trust Exmoor.  The charity helps people with disabilities to participate in outdoor activities and sports including cycling.


It promises to be a great event and we are anticipating that it will attract 250 riders from all over the South West.
