Devon Grit

Next Race: 29/08/2021

Bicton College, East Budleigh, Budleigh Salterton, EX9 7BY

Our gravel event returns for a second year. For 2021 & by popular demand we've added an extreme 100Km version. Once again the route will be self-nav but we're adding some markers in a few key places & fine tuning the GPX files.

All four routes take in some of the best sections of Woodbury Common. Highlights include Woodbury Castle & some great single track on the common, a section of the Exe Estuary path, a climb up for views of the sea at the top of Beacon Hill and also Mutter Moor.

The routes are designed to be ridden on a gravel bike but a cyclocross bike or a lightweight XC mountain bike will be almost as quick. e-mountain bikes are also welcome. The ride is not suitable for road bikes & minimum recommended tyre width is 35mm.
