The Exmoor Beast started more than a decade ago which makes it one of the original tough sportives; and certainly the oldest sportive ride in Exmoor. It was a very tough bike ride back then. The weather made it even tougher in those early years. It continues to be tough - it’s a Beast!! This year’s routes are exciting and even more challenging than recent years. It is essential that you have trained yourself and are well prepared for a challenge of this kind.
Routes head north from the Tiverton HQ and the trade-mark climb of Dunkery, the highest point on Exmoor, comes in at 35 miles (56km); but if you’ve opted for the 100 mile route you actually climb higher after the Exford Feedstation as this year we ascend Exmoor Forest to Lucott Moor where the road is even higher - be warned!
