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

Budleigh Salterton106K event starting at 9am on Sunday 3rd September from Budleigh Salterton.

 

A picturesque ride leaving the Devon coast from Budleigh heading inland over Woodbury Common and descending past Exeter Airport on its way to Silverton with a challenging climb to Butterleigh before descending rapidly into Tiverton for the first cafe control. From here it's mainly quiet lanes through Cullompton, skirting the edge of the Blackdown Hills before descending into Honiton for the second cafe control stop. Leaving Honiton, it's a gradual descent along quite lanes back to the coast at Budleigh for a well deserved cream tea. Two info controls en route.

 

Routesheet, gps file and entry here (aukweb.net)

 



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.
