Exmoor Perambulation

Saturday 22nd June 2019 06:30 am

Location: Pinkery Centre for Outdoor Learning
Duration: 13 hours and 30 minutes
Description: Come and join us on a 15 or 31 mile perambulation “relaxed journey on foot for exercise or pleasure” (as the dictionary defines it!) around the original boundary of the Royal Hunting Forest of Exmoor. You'll participate in a historic event that traces its origins back to the time of Edward I. This is one of the most challenging walks in the Exmoor annual calendar. During the 31 miles, the route follows the boundary of the Royal Forest at the time of its sale in 1818. One great aspect of this event is that much of the route is accessible only with permission of the landowners concerned – so you accessed parts of the National Park not normally open to the public.

Duration: 8 hours and 30 minutes
Description: National Youth Championship event comes to Minehead Following the success of the town centre cycle racing in June 2018, the event in 2019 will now form part of the National Series Youth Championships.

The event will open with some fun events for all the family including a wheelbarrow race, street athletics and BMX Freestyle Demonstrations It’s expected that each National Series Youth boys’ race will attract full fields of 80 riders, with 40 for each of the girls’ events. Cycling Club member and Race Director Paul Butcher explained “We expect many of the National riders will stay for the weekend and race in the South West Regional races the following day, so it promises to be a weekend full of top-quality competition, great atmosphere and excitement. Sports fans will know that it was an event like this which set Wales’ Geraint Thomas on the road to becoming a multiple World Champion and Olympic Gold medalist, and then in 2018 to winning the world’s biggest and most famous cycle race, the Tour de France. Club Chairman Neil Arnold said, “It’s a huge privilege to be asked to stage such a prestigious event. In the last 10 years, cycling has become possibly the UK’s most high-achieving sport, so to be part of a national series is a fantastic accolade for the town and the club. Having promoted a number of successful and widely-acclaimed events in recent years, including the Tanks Direct Porlock Hill Climb, the Stella Farrell road races, and countless mountain-bike and cyclo-cross events run by the Merlins, the club is now regarded as one of the main players on the national cycling scene.” Race Organiser Paul Butcher added, “This is beyond our wildest dreams and places the Minehead Grand Prix up there among the top events in the country. But it is just reward for the club, the town and the wider area. The event has received unbelievable support from the Minehead Events Group, the Town Council and the local business community, as well as a small army of volunteers from Minehead Cycling Club/Merlins and others. National status for the event guarantees extra 200-plus riders just for the Youth Races, with a likely increase in entries from seniors as a result.” More details will appear on the event website, however in the meantime please contact mineheadgrandprix@btinternet.com for further information or follow the link below to the Minehead Grand Prix facebook page.
