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

image200k - 18th March 2018

 

Sarah's event with a new start and new route for 2018. It still climbs over the Quantock Hills in Somerset.

 

Look out for Dead Woman's Ditch on top of the Quantocks. This is an excellent early season run. A wide variety of roads and scenery make the Mad March a memorable experience, with an interesting mix of weather guaranteed!

 

 

PARENTAL CONSENT is required for entrants under 18 years of age. See the entry form for details.

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.
