Exmouth Exodus IX - Bertha Bites!

It was another wild night on the Exmouth Exodus as the back end of hurricane Bertha swept in across the Blackdown hills to moisten the 200-odd hardy souls who took on the Exodus this year. There was some weather, that's for sure. But the years that get the weather also give is the best stories... How was your ride?

A BIG thank you

To all our volunteers: Dave at the start, Chuffy, The Cheddar Scouts and all their cake-bakers, Baggy, Vorsprung and Mrs Vorsprung, Dave, Caroline and Jefferson at Fivehead, Other Gill and Chris at Luppitt and the inestimable team of bacon-fryers at the Harbour View. Without you there would be no ride. Thanks.

If you want to volunteer next year, email us and let us know. This was Chuffy and Baggy's last year as organisers, so we'll need someone to step up.

What is the Exmouth Exodus?

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, just over 100 miles

dot On a Saturday near a full moon that doesn't clash with the DD. The date for 2015 is TBC

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.

GPX and PDF downloads of the route

We'll be looking at the route for 2015. An updated route sheet and GPX file will be available nearer the start
