Is the Exmoor Beauty on next year?

Postby davylear » Mon Nov 12, 2012 12:21 pm

Have been entering 2013 events to give me a kick up the backside for winter training but can find no information on it. Anyone know if it is happening again as all the other events appear to be open for entry now?

Spoke to the organiser at the beast, still at the planning stage but he was hoping to stage it again.

The Beast wrap-up e-mail sent out today says that the Beauty is on the 21st April, and you can sign up for both the Beauty and the Beast on 1st December.
Start location has been changed to Tiverton :D

Tiverton's convenient for most riders, the roads are quiet the scenery is good...

...but it's a long way from Exmoor.

I am glad to see that they have put their hands up as I certainly found it alot more difficult than their original description led me to believe it would be.

With a new start planned in Tiverton and the opening and closing miles through the relatively flat Exe Valley, 'The Beauty' should properly live up to it's name next April. And, at around 100km, the distance should be much more doable for an early season sportive.
