24 July 2021 starting at 12:00 noon (note revised date)

This is a point-to-point event starting at Exeter St David's Railway station and finishing at London Marylebone. Controls are at Wells, Durrington (Wilts), Stow-on-the-Wold, Buckingham, Marylebone (finish). 

 It is an X-rated event, meaning that there are no officially manned controls and you complete, sign, and return your card by post.

The Controls

Wells.  There are several options in the town including a garage on the route and several shops a little off-route in the town centre.  Ensure you return to the route to pass the cathedral on your way out of the town.

Durrington.  A garage and a Tesco are to be found on the left after crossing the roundabout (do not turn left at the roundabout).  They both close around 2200hrs.  The route continues and turns into a very minor lane by the ancient Bulford church, then follows lanes along the Avon valley northwards to Marlborough, before skirting Swindon.

Stow-on-the-Wold.  There is a 24hr garage on the left after the right turn on to the main road.

Buckingham.  A choice of 24hr garages on the right just off the by-pass, before & at the right turn.

The finish: Marylebone Station.  There are food stalls inside the station and various cafes, etc. nearby.  Make sure your bike is secure.
