Put your summer training to the test in the Wiggle Exmouth Ex-terminator in what is, as the name suggests, an event that is difficult to beat with its numerous tough climbs. Reflective of a true Devon sportive, with a tough, undulating hilly landscape – the hard work will be worth it with unspoilt sea views, patchwork field views and quiet back roads reflective of the region.
Starting from Bicton College you’ll head towards the coast first of all as you reach the up-and-down gradients around Budleigh. Continuing to follow the stunning coastline, take in the sea views as you ride past Sidmouth and touch the tip of the stunning Salcombe Regis.
Just as you think the gradient is settling down when you’re heading out towards Seaton, it’ll slowly start to ramp up once more until you reach a momentary climbing peak, rolling along the top of a plateau, before plunging into another series of hilly drops and climbs.
Crossing over the A303, you’ll head in-land. Eventually, you’ll reach the last climb of note before reaching Tiverton – from which point it’s relatively plain sailing all the way back to ride HQ.
The Wiggle Exmouth Ex-Terminator Sportive is a popular cycle ride, set in a beautiful part of the UK, designed to be both challenging and rewarding and, if it hasn’t terminated you by the time you've finished, we’re sure you’ll be saying “I’ll be back…” for more.
We always welcome volunteers at our events so if you fancy joining the crew for the day and helping out, please get in touch.

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
SportivePhoto will be taking pictures of all riders at this event. Please visit www.sportivephoto.com once you have taken part in the event to view your photos!
