CTC Triennial Veterans Ride

TriVets logo.jpg

The Triennial Veterans Rides are 100-mile events run across the country every three years. They're specifically for club veterans aged 50-plus. Camaraderie runs high, as does the determination to complete the ride whatever the odds. You have 12 hours to finish.

This year the rides are taking place at a number of locations across the country.

CTC Devon - Triennial Veterans Ride - Saturday 1st June 2013

The Devon ride is a coast-to-coast ride visiting Watchet in the north and Budleigh Salterton in the south. The route is hillier than many of the other triennial rides, so riders and machines need to be prepared for the challenge.

Riders will have the opportunity to ride in groups with a local leader. If you are under 50 or prefer to ride on your own, there is the opportunity to ride in the annual audax over a similar route. Click here for details

Route Details

Please note change of start from our last Trivets in 2010. This year we are starting from Uffculme School, near Cullompton. Registration will be open from 7.15am, with riders starting in groups from 8am.

The 100 mile route has about 5,000 feet (1,500m) total climb. The route avoids hills wherever practical, but Devon is known for its undulations. There is only one arrow on the route and the second half of the ride is flatter than the first half.

The following map shows the approximate route. The detailed route can be examined on the interactive Bikehike web-site which also allows the route to be loaded onto a GPS device. Alternatively GPS users can download the route directly in GPX format (right click - "save link as").
