START/FINISH: Car Park, Simonsbath TA24 7SH, 51.140150, -3.753494
DISTANCE: 46.6 miles/75.0km
TERRAIN: Peaty moorland, stony singletrack and river paths. Plenty of climbs and occasional river crossings.
NAVIGATION: Difficult. The bridleways across the moorland, particularly on the northern half of the ride, can be faint
or almost non-existent at times. Although the Two Moors Way is signposted on the way south from Cheriton it is easy
to drop down into Farley Water by mistake, so make sure you keep right at Roborough Castle. Stay right further along
Cheriton Ridge too, to avoid crossing Clannon Ball (steep and very rocky) and meeting the road too soon. OS
Landranger 180 would be useful.
