Exmouth Exodus VIII: thanks for coming!

It was wet, and it was windy, but hundreds of hardy souls braved the conditions to complete this year's ride. Chapeau to everyone who made it to Exmouth!

The new food stop at Fivehead is definitely a keeper, and we might tweak the route next year to come into the village a slightly different way.

Massive thanks to the following peeps:

Bristol - Rob for taking out route sheet duties at short notice

Cheddar - Cheddar Scout troop (Grant, Wendy, other troop leaders and parents). Donations at this stop will go to the Troop. Last year they took a load of their kids for a session at Newport Velodrome with the proceeds.

Fivehead - Emily, Teresa, Ian and Jefferson.

Luppit - Gill, Frances, Elizabeth and Jonathon

Exmouth - The inestimable staff of the Harbout View Cafe for supplying the hungry hordes with breakfast, and Simon Edkins and Rob Howes for taking care of the coach at the finish.

See you all next year!

Chuffy, Baggy & Dave

About 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, about 100 miles

dot On a Saturday near a full moon that doesn't clash with the DD. The date for 2013 is Sat 17 August

dot Starting in Bristol, 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.
