Organiser's Description

Our gravel event returns for a third year. It’s ideal for gravel bikes, MTBs, cyclocross bikes & ebikes & takes in the best gravel trails of East Devon.

All five 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 & we recommend a minimum tyre width of 35mm. Although we will put out some markers this event is self-nav so you will need a Garmin, Wahoo or phone for navigation purposes. Don’t underestimate these rides! You need to add at least 50 percent onto the distances to get the ‘road’ equivalent in time & energy required to take them on.

We are now able to offer camping at Bicton College over the bank holiday weekend.

New for 2022 is the Devon Grit Micro route which is shorter. It is also nearly all off-road so suitable for slightly younger children accompanied by a responsible adult

How to Get There

Google Maps tends to take you down narrow lanes & through the narrow back entrance straight into the path of runners. The best way to avoid this is to install the free What3Words app on your phone & use the location https://w3w.co/torched.broth.earpiece with google maps. It’s a spot on the main drive & should ensure you arrive at the main entrance.

Parking

There’s plenty of free parking at Bicton College. Just turn right at the top of the drive & park in the main car park.

Location

Bicton College, Woodbury Common, East Budleigh, EX9 7BY
