The route for the 2024 GER will be confirmed much nearer the time (around August 2024) but it's highly likely that it will be very similar to the amended route that proved so popular in 2023.


So please have a look at the links and the description below as they should help to give you a good idea of the challenge that awaits at the GER.

The Ride starts at the Silk Mills Park & Ride on the west side of Taunton (A3065, Silk Mills Road).

Riders head out through Bishop's Hull and several other quiet Somerset villages on a nice, flat stretch to get the legs going, before approaching Milverton and then encountering a number of modest but testing rises as the route rolls and undulates through yet more tranquil Somerset country lanes.

The route also pays a fleeting visit to Devon around this point as it makes its way to Bampton, then it's on through Exebridge and Brushford to reach the gateway to the magnificent Exmoor National Park at Dulverton.

Passing through Dulverton, riders face possibly the most challenging section of the Ride - ascending to the top of Exmoor.  It's about 4 miles of climbing in total to the very top and it's quite challenging in places but, whether on bike or on foot, it's definitely worth the effort for the views that await!

Once up on the top of Exmoor the route rolls again as it heads north then turns east, combining some short(ish) ascents with some very fast and rewarding descents on its way through Exford, Wheddon Cross and on past Raleigh's Cross.  The route then heads north again along the eastern-most edge of Exmoor towards Washford and Blue Anchor.


The Ride finally finishes 66 miles (105km) later at Home Farm on the delightful Blue Anchor seafront, where friends, family and other well-wishers are welcome to come along to help riders celebrate their achievement!
