UK Cyclist: Long-distance and leisure cycling in the South-west and elsewhere
200k (click for map)
PDF routesheet here
Online entry here

A simple route with enough climbing to keep you warm and to reward you with AAA points. It's a Tiverton start. If you ride it early in the year, weather permitting, you'll see Snowdrop Valley in full flower. Simonsbath is the halfway point and, unless you are a very cautious descender, you can make up time shortly thereafter.



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.
