New Event Coming Soon!
The Mendip Murmuration is a gathering of like minded individuals coming together with a common purpose. Riding your bike through some of Somerset’s stunning landscapes. Cruising and carving over and around the Cheddar area will make for an amazing 20 or 30 mile route that will leave you wanting more.
The Exmoor Explorer is a non-competitive mountain biking event of 20 or 40 miles, held in the beautiful Exmoor National Park in the South West England.
Open moorland, woodland trails, natural single track and secluded Combes, the Explorer doesn’t disappoint. This iconic Exmoor cycling event was started 19 years ago and we are immensely proud to now run it.
The Quantock Quake is a non-competitive mountain biking event of 20 or 35 miles, held in the Beautiful Quantock Hills AONB, Somerset, South West England. Open moorland, woodland trails, natural single track and secluded Combes, the Quake has it all.
Whether you choose the 20 or 35 mile route you will be able to access areas of the Quantocks usually restricted. You’ll also see some of the greatest views from and of the Quantocks and be fully supported by our friendly team.
Can I borrow equipment?
No. We ask that all entrants are fully equipped and understand how to use their equipment prior to taking part in the event.
Can I wear my shorts?
Of course. We advise that long trousers are worn to prevent rashes from plants such as Gorse and Heather but this is up to you to decide.
Is it possible to get lost?
Yes. This event is not way-marked. Entrants should be proficient with the use of a map and compass and be able to follow a route description. Contact us if you're at all concerned about the navigation skills required. A full route description and GPX files for GPS devices can be found on the downloads page. We reccommened you use the Ordnance Survey Explorer 1:25000 map sheet: Exmoor OL9
What if I run out of time?
The event is 31 miles but spilt into two halves. There are 7 checkpoints in total. 4 on the first half, one at half way and 2 on the second half.
Entrants not reaching half way (check point 5) by 2pm will be stopped and transported back to the event base. At all other checkpoints the event organisers reserve the right to determine whether there is time for you to continue. Please note, should the event oranisers decide you are unable to continue then your tally will be removed. If you choose to continue then you are doing so at your own risk and will no longer be under the supervison and insurance of the event.
Can I fill up my water at every checkpoint?
There will be water available at most checkpoints but we ask that you come with the aim of being self-sufficient for the day. Some of the check points are remote and it's difficult to get water there. All participants must carry a water bottle. We will no longer be suppliying throw away cups at checkpoints. If each entrant used a cup at each checkpoint we would be throwing over 1000 plastic cups into landfill in one day!
