Dakota Route

The Taunton Flyer 'Dakota' route starts and finishes at Taunton Racecourse. It covers a total distance of approximately 70 miles (114 km) with 4000 ft (1200 m) of climbing. This route will take you up into the Blackdown hills where you will pass the historic wartime airfields of Culmhead, Upottery (Smeatharpe), and Dunkeswell before heading down through the stunning Culm Valley to Willand and your first Feed Station. You will then follow beautiful quiet country lanes through Clyst Hydon, Talaton and Escot to bring you out to the old A30 at Firmile. From here you will head back up into the Blackdown Hills via the challenging slopes of Greenhill Way! You will then pass RAF Dunkeswell once more and descend to Hemyock for your second Feed Station. Finally you will climb back into the Blackdown Hills before descending down through Corfe to Taunton Racecourse.

There is a cut-off time of 11:25 hrs at Hemyock 24 miles). All riders who fail to meet this cut-off time will be diverted onto the shorter route. This is to ensure all riders are able to make it back to the finish by 17:00 hrs. To achieve this time you will need to average a minimum of 9 mph and stop for no more than 10 minutes at each feed station.
