Exmouth Exodus IX - 9-10 August 2014

Want to ride through the night to the seaside with a bunch of like minded people? If you do, you might have already tried the Dunwich Dynamo, from Hackney to Dunwich. We did, and we loved it, but it's a long old way back to the West Country from the North Suffolk coast. And so it is that the Exmouth Exodus came to be. It's based on the Dunwich Dynamo model and is:

dot A free to enter ride through the night to the seaside, about 100 miles

dot On a Saturday near a full moon that doesn't clash with the DD. The date for 2014 is Sat 9 August

dot Starting in Bath, and finishing at Exmouth

dot On mostly minor roads, with three major climbs and plenty of other lumps and bumps, as well as some flat bits...

There's lots more you might want to know, and if you cast your eyes over the FAQs you'll probably find the info you need. if not, just post a message on the forum, or contact us and we'll get in touch.

If you're coming, let us know!

If you're planning to ride in 2014, let us know by filling in this simple form. It's not binding or anything, we just like to gauge numbers so we can buy enough teabags.

New start location: Bath

We've set off from Clifton for each of the previous eight runnings of the Exodus, but this year the ride will be starting from Green Park Station in Bath. The numbers of participants made it difficult to fit everyone in to Channing's Hotel beer garden and it wasn't ideal if it was raining; Green Park station has a large covered space we can use for the start. Obviously we won't be going out over Clifton Suspension Bridge, but there's a new treat in store: The Two Tunnels Greenway, which takes you out of Bath to the south through the tunnels of the old Somerset and Dorset Railway. The Combe Down tunnel is over a mile long.

The distance to Exmouth is more or less exactly the same as before. The route is a bit hillier at the start, with a sharp climb to Hinton Charterhouse after the Two Tunnels, but the ascent onto the Mendips is more gradual than before. The route then heads to Cheddar, as before; there may be another route alteration after Cheddar too. We'll post the finalised route when it's ready.

Book a place on the coach home

We'll be running a coach back to Bath, as we have done in previous years to Bristol. Your bike gets carried safely back in a removal lorry. The cost for one person and one bike is £20.
