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

9th June 2018 starting at 12:00 noon

This is a new event, starting in Exeter and finishing at Marylebone in London. Controls are at Wells, Durrington (Wilts), Stow-on-the-Wold, Buckingham, Marylebone (finish).

This is a new, place-to-place event running between Exeter St David's Railway Station and Marylebone Station in London.  It is an X-rated event, meaning that there are no manned controls and you complete, sign, and return your card by post.

Here is a link to a map of the route. Routesheet & gpx file updated 25.05.18

Here is a zipped gpx file with controls waymarked (updated 04.06.18) (note that controls are given as towns only — it's up to you to find a suitable place).

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.
