For our Devon sportive we have tried to find a route thats about more than just visiting Dartmoor but with such an environment to cycle in, its difficult to not be drawn to it.

The routes are a fantastic mix of open spaces, great riding lanes, superb climbs and stunning views and a few places you wouldn't normally see on a daily ride, so not only the special place that is Dartmoor, but beautiful rivers, stunning woodland and quaint villages and all seen from the saddle.

Haytor will form part of the route, its no mountain but is an iconic climb and one we had to include.

No matter your ability, this is a friendly and welcoming sportive.

All our events are fully supported with marked routes, you won't have to worry about anything other than the cycling.
