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:
A free to
enter ride through the night to the seaside, about 100
On a Saturday near a full moon that doesn't clash with the DD. The date for 2014 is Sat 9 August
in Bath, and finishing at Exmouth
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.

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.

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.
