UK Cyclist: Long-distance and leisure cycling in the South-west and elsewhere

image100k starting at 09.00 25th November 2017

This ride is a fairly flat 100km starting from Cranbrook, just outside Exeter.

It travels on the main road up the Exe valley to Bampton (where we always stop for breakfast, Bampton being the first control). We then take the rolling B-road to Wiveliscombe before turning into the lanes to Wellington, and then a mixture of lanes and B-road all the way home. There are only really two hills – a fairly gentle drag over to Wiveliscombe and then a steeper one as soon as you leave Wiveliscombe on the way to Wellington. A good winter ride as much of it is on fairly main roads.

Long-distance cycling under AUK rules is often (though inaccurately) referred to as audaxing. Mudguards are not required for any of these events. Use whatever bike suits you. If you don't want to follow a routesheet then download the GPS file. You will need to be fit and self-sufficient. Most of these events, especially the longer ones, are hard. You should be an experienced cyclist with both fitness and stamina. There is a minimum speed of 15kph for all the events of 200km and above. Don't worry about the maximum speed of 30kph, you won't get near it. Prepare your bike and yourself carefully for any of these events. If you do all the distances, you become an Exeter Wheelers Super Randonneur.
