We’ve gone a bit retro and reverted to type for the 2019 Exmoor Beast. A new rurally located HQ on the edge of Exmoor, a later date and two new beastly routes (subject to change up until the day).

The Beast is a a tough cyclo-sportive challenge not for the faint-hearted and not suitable for beginners or inexperienced cyclists. Riders need to be reasonably fit and competent. We have support vehicles, medics, feedstation(s), mechanics and a little something for returning Beast-conquerors. Before entering you must give consideration to your health and fitness. Our sweeper vehicles follow the last riders at a steady 11mph and if you are over-taken you unfortunately do not qualify as a finisher. Get in!

Stay informed by checking our newsletter, Facebook and Twitter.
