Did anyone out there do this last year?
If so, any advice, comments, things they glad/wish had/hadn't done...?
bad deal....hope you're ok now ledbury...what happened?
What did everyone think of the ride?
If they'd put in a mini feed/water stop a little earlier in, and held it in the summer, surely that would have to be the best one day event ever.
Yehhhh, would love to do that ride in the summer. I thought that as I was going up that long leafy climb out of Lynmouth.I'm tired today - nodded off this afternoon!

Two cons might be increasingly crowded calendars and it was something to keep training for dark nights or not. Agree with all the positives about the event, beezer route and marshalling top drawer. All those involved at the start and finish, including the Event Director, were just very pleasant, cheerful and helpful. Sure, the first feed station should have been earlier but i have yet to do the perfect event. Atmosphere and cameraderie was excellent too. Beast is best.
Just a final thought - why can't the riders' final time at events such as the Exmoor Beast be based on when they start riding as opposed to a set time (like the 7.00am start such as the Beast) - surely technology allows this nowadays? How about allowing riders to start between say 7.00 and 9.00 (like all of the Belgian sportives)? Sounds like a good approach to avoid riders bottlenecks!
negatives for a summer re-run
erm... I'm struggling here
