Exmoor Beauty? - Nope definitely a beast!

Anyone else ride the Exmoor Beauty yesterday?

Very, very tough I thought partly due to experiencing all 4 seasons in 1 ride and a fantastic route.

I did it - great fun, my first sportive and really enjoyed it. Ridge Road was killer though, into that wind, and hail, and rain. There was a collective sigh of relief in the group I was with when we turned off to Simonsbath.

Glad you enjoyed it localsurfer, I felt the road across the top into the hail was tougher than most of the hills, a welcome relief to turn down into simonsbath indeed!
Also a testing hill up out of Dulverton on a stomach full of cake and malt loaf, got my legs straight back into it!
