A simple route with enough climbing to keep you warm and to reward you with AAA points. It's a Tiverton start.  The road through Blue Anchor is likely to remain closed for some time due to coastal erosion - alternative is to retrace to the /a39 where go right to rejoin the route at Carhampton. If you ride it early in the year, weather permitting, you'll see Snowdrop Valley in full flower (but note that the road may be closed when the tourist buses are running - in which case continue on the main road, left at Wheddon Cross sp Exford, and rejoin the route). Simonsbath is the halfway point and, unless you are a very cautious descender, you can make up time shortly thereafter.
