UK Cyclist: Long-distance and leisure cycling in the South-west and elsewhere
600k (click for map)
PDF routesheet here
Online entry here

This is a challenging and scenic route that covers the SW peninsula. It is best undertaken outside the main holiday period: just before or after the school summer break are ideal times. You'll need to prepare well and carry some provisions. There is a calendar version as well.



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.
