THE MERIDA EX presented by Shimano will return to hills and valleys of Exmoor for another round of our 3-day enduro extravaganza.

After a truly epic event in 2023, which showed how THE MERIDA EX can handle even the most challenging weather conditions, the 7th edition of our multi-day enduro event will take place slightly earlier this year on 6-8th September 2024.

Judging by the feedback we received from countless riders, our partners and the press, the 2023 event, despite the rather ‘challenging’ conditions, once again impressed with great riding, exciting racing, a relaxed event atmosphere and a long list of unusual and exciting event details, creating a unique enduro experience for everyone.

Although the plan was to run an e-bike only edition in 2024, due to the overwhelming demand for another ‘classic’ event, we can officially announce that we will once again run a mixed event with both ‘e’ and ‘analogue’ bikes welcome.

So, THE MERIDA EX presented by Shimano 2024 will invite just 80 riders to tackle over 20 special stages spread over approximately 100km of riding, including the popular Exposure Light night stages, all squeezed into three action packed days of riding on some of the best trails Exmoor has to offer.

THE MERIDA EX presented by Shimano has always been based not only on providing top level riding, but also on going the extra mile in every other aspect of our event, from the facilities to the food, from the all inclusive bar to our uplift element. While those fundamentals will not change, we always have a few extra ‘tricks’ up our sleeve to keep things exciting for the many returning ‘repeat customers’ we have built up over the years.

We’re really looking forward to returning to this gem of the south-west and can’t wait to share with our riders what we have in store for 2024.

THE MERIDA EX presented by Shimano is made possible with the help of the event partners:

MERIDA, Shimano, Exposure Lights, National Trust, Bontrager, RideGuard, Race Face and the Bristol Beer Factory.
