The riding: what to expect.
Exmoor is all about drama. Steep climbs, big views and quiet roads. On a clear day you can see from south Wales to Dartmoor, and everything in between. The unique landscape, typified by fast flowing streams, steep wooded valleys and remote moorland, reaches a crescendo when the high moor abruptly meets the Bristol Channel to create the highest sea cliffs in England.
We will explore the shaded treasures of the deep valleys, glide along moorland ridges with vast views and tackle some of the most famous climbs in the UK. Dunkery Beacon, the Porlock Toll Road and Lynmouth will all be served up as part of menu that offers challenge and reward in equal measure.
Exmoor is an ancient land, scarred by weather and more than 6,000 years of farming, so even when the going gets tough, there's always something intriguing to act as a distraction. Whether that be a 500 year old bridge or a mighty-horned highland cow giving you the eye from the roadside.
Riding through Exmoor really is like nothing else you will experience, but you should be prepared to fight gravity on climbs which can be unrelenting in their gradient and unforgiving for the over-geared.
