The Routes

Both routes set off and end at Budleigh Cricket Club.

The 100km pedal will take you over the undulating countryside of East Devon passing through Sidmouth and Seaton on the Jurassic Coast and along the River Axe to Axmouth. You will then loop round and head back inland through Colyton, Ottery St Mary and Woodbury. This is a challenging ride with some great climbs rewarding you with some of the best scenery the county has to offer.

The 50km pedal splits from its big brother at Sidmouth and heads across country through the lanes towards Tipton St John to rejoin the 100k at Ottery St Mary. This shorter route offers picturesque lanes and challenging sections amid more of East Devon’s unique scenery.
