Tackle some of Exmoor's toughest terrain on two wheels and be part of something amazing. This is a chance to test out your fitness and bike-handling skills as well as enjoy some breathtaking views across Devon and Somerset.

Our experts have carefully planned the 17-mile route to offer a variety of surfaces beneath your tyre tread. It will be a unique experience not to be missed, whether you are a novice mountain biker or a seasoned pro. The route is new for 2015, so even if you took part last year, there will be something different for you to experience.

Entry is just £15 and includes refreshments on the day. Camping is also available on site from just £5 per person, with campervan pitches also on offer - so you can make a real weekend of it! Full details will follow in your registration pack.

The Exmoor Mountain Bike Challenge is run by North Devon Hospice with all proceeds going to help fund our vital work in the community. All participants will pledge to raise a minimum of £50 to help us care for local people affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. This can come in the form of raising sponsorship from friends and family, or by holding a small fundraising event (such as a raffle or pub quiz). When registered, we will send you a pack full of ideas that will make this a walk in the park. Alternatively, you can simply make a donation of a minimum of £50 rather than raising sponsorship.
