The routesheet start is at Honiton but you may start at any point along the route. From Honiton there is a sharp climb to the golf club, then a rolling route with glorious views across wooded valleys to Colyton. There follows a climb and descent into Lyme Regis. The route then heads due north over Windwhistle and down on to the Somerset Levels. At Axbridge there is a climb over the Mendips then slightly busier roads to Clevedon. Heading back south there is a short section of A38 before you turn towards Mark and the Levels again. After Bridgwater, the routes climbs over the Quantocks and follows lanes and B-roads to South Molton. The final leg back to Honiton is mainly rolling, with a couple of climbs.

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.
