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


Ride a figure of eight around the East Devon countryside.

This ride starts in Exeter near the Honiton Road Park & Ride, there are small winding lanes, steady climbs and a fast final section in total covering 108km.

There are magnificent views of the River Otter to the South and the Blackdown Hills to the North. Although you are free to choose your own control points, Otterton Mill, Cold Harbour Mill and the York Inn are well worth a visit. Locations are indicated on the route sheet.

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.
