100 miles is a long way.

Join OutdoorLads on this silly adventure cycling 100 miles overnight from Bath to Exmouth. This is an annual event organised by a third party.  Cancelled in 2020, the event is likely to next occur on the evening of 21st August 2021. Please don't book any accommodation or transport in case the apocalypse occurs in 2021.  The leader will be in touch when all is confirmed.

According to the organisers, anyone with a properly functioning bike, some decent lights and a reasonable level of fitness should be able to make it to the end.  The event typically has between 100 and 300 riders taking part.

The route goes through the Two Tunnels and south on mostly B roads and minor roads towards the south coast. There are some fairly major climbs to do along the way, but don't be put off as apparently there are plenty of flat sections to recover on.  The route can be viewed here. If you haven't got to grips with Strava, ask the event leader Will for the .gpx file.

Unless we manage to find ourselves a volunteer, the ride will be unsupported. There will be no van coming to pick us up, but hopefully with a roll of duct tape and some tools we should get you back on two wheels.  If your legs give up, the most obvious bail-out point is Taunton train station (60 mile mark) though obviously you will have to wait till trains start up again.  With smart-phones these days we should also be able to locate a taxi somewhere in the south-west.

Hopefully we will all be of a similar pace to cycle together.  If you think you may be slower or faster I would recommend loading the route onto a GPS device.

Please make sure you have decent charged up lights and if you have it, wear some high visibility clothing.  

Have a power nap on the Saturday prior to the event.  On arrival in Exmouth on the Sunday morning we will have a hearty breakfast before catching a train home.
