Here's where you'll find all the latest news and developments regarding the 2024 Great Exmoor Ride:

2024 GER Rider Medals

We're pleased to say that we've sorted the design for our 2024 rider medal, and one of these fab-looking bespoke medals will be waiting at the finish for everyone who completes the 2024 GER in September.


You may notice that there's more than a 'nod' here to both Exmoor (via the Exmoor Stag) and to Blue Anchor, where we finish (as well as a none-too-subtle hint that there's also a bit of climbing involved!) :)

Indeed, previous participants routinely confirm that the Ride consists of a spectacular but also pretty challenging route and, while it's eminently do-able if you're properly prepared, once the climbing starts it keeps coming at you and it's undoubtedly a good test of anyone's cycling legs.

All of which means that it's definitely a significant personal challenge and you will KNOW that you've well & truly earned your medal when you cross the finish line (but you'll also feel extremely pleased that you did it!) :)

So, to get your hands on one of these 1) make sure that you get signed up for the Ride (enter via our Online Entry page if you haven't done so yet); 2) get some training in beforehand (the more you can do the easier it will feel!); and 3) then just go out and rise to (& enjoy!) the challenge on the day.

And maybe see if you can get a few pals to do this with you - you'll be glad of the company, especially if (when?) the going gets tough, and it just makes a challenge like this even more enjoyable when you've got a few mates along with you.

We're seeing more & more groups riding together and it's clear what a difference it can make and also how much fun it is, and it's definitely the way to go!

So sign up NOW and make sure that one of these fab medals has got YOUR name on it!

NEW! GER Withdrawals Policy

We want to do everything we can to make it easy for people to enter our events at the earliest opportunity, because it can make a big difference to us AND to our riders:


Having a good idea of likely numbers helps us massively with our planning and preparations, especially when so many elements have to be booked/ordered/paid for well in advance in order to be able to deliver the standards, services & facilities that we want to offer.


Entering early gives people plenty of time to prepare & practise for their challenge; it can provide the motivation that's sometimes needed to get out & ride; it's definitely something positive to look forward to over the winter months; and, for those who make good use of the available preparation time, it should hopefully lead to those people generally feeling fitter, happier and healthier as a result.

So, to encourage & facilitate early sign-up, we've come up with a very clear and transparent 'withdrawals policy' for our riders for 2024 that we believe is both fair to riders and to us.

Obviously, hopefully everyone appreciates that there comes a point at which we have to fully commit on all our services & expenditure etc (exactly the same as any other event) so the options available to us inevitably reduce as the event date approaches, however if anyone who's entered for any of our events in 2024 needs to withdraw for ANY reason then the following options will be available:



  • Entry fee refund (minus £5 admin fee);

  • Entry transferred to one of our other events in the same year, if still available (FREE);

  • Entry carried forward to the same event for the following year (FREE);

  • Entry transferred to another person (FREE).



  • Entry transferred to one of our other events in the same year, if still available (FREE);

  • Entry carried forward to the same event for the following year (FREE);

  • Entry transferred to another person (FREE).



  • Entry transferred to another person (FREE).

So, as you can see, if something unexpected happens or crops up after you've entered with us there are options available right up until just THREE DAYS before the event - our view is that this is a fair & reasonable approach to take; we believe it's more flexible & accommodating than most other equivalent events offer; and hopefully it will give you the confidence & the peace of mind to get your entry in NOW via our Online Entry page.

So come on, it really does make a difference - enter early and help us to help you!
