Next Race: 25/08/2024
Bicton College, East Budleigh, Budleigh Salterton, EX9 7BY
Our gravel event returns for a 5th year. Once again the route will be predominantly self-nav but the Micro route on Woodbury Common itself will be fully marked as there are many places where there are multiple paths close together.
All five routes take in some of the best sections of Woodbury Common. Highlights include Woodbury Castle & some great single track on the common, a section of the Exe Estuary path, a climb up for views of the sea at the top of Beacon Hill and also Mutter Moor.
The routes are designed to be ridden on a gravel bike but a cyclocross bike or a lightweight XC mountain bike will be almost as quick. e-mountain bikes are also welcome. The ride is not suitable for road bikes & minimum recommended tyre width is 35mm. 40mm+ is probably the optimum.
