The Exmoor Beast is set for November 4th and has been devised by Exmouth-based event coordinators M.I.G. The sportive has two distances: 100kms or 100 miles, and participation is limited to 1500 riders.
Organiser Marcus Di Vincenzo said: “The domestic sportive scene needs a spectacular fixture, which is a fitting finale to the annual calendar and we will provide all the trimmings that will form the ideal climax to the season. If the awesome climbs don’t take your breath away then the fantastic scenery certainly will and our aim is to make the journey from entry to post-ride recovery smooth, enjoyable and truly memorable.”
On the evening before the ride there will be a firework display at Dunster Castle, start location for the rides. There will also be a bistro, entertainment and a selection of ghost tours. A bus shuttle will operate between Minehead and the start.
Di Vincenzo said he is looking for sponsors for the event as well as trade stands for the pre-event expo at Dunster Castle.
