Age 12 & over
Three challenging sportives, offering distances from 34 miles to 112 miles, exploring the challenging terrain of Dartmoor and the surrounding area. The rides are fully supported with feed stations, signed and marshalled routes, chip timing with first aid and bike & rider recovery service available. The Challenge and Extreme routes also have a thrilling KOM/QOM segment challenge as you tackle the gruelling climb to Haytor. A great event village hosts the start and finish, with massage, food and drink and free parking, making this a great choice for all levels of intrepid cyclist.
This event is part of Moor to Sea.
Sportiva Events is doing its best to minimise the environmental impact of this event. Here are a few of their initiatives:
For all events which include a t-shirt, there is the option to plant a tree instead through a partnership with Treesnottees
New paper cups have been sourced to be fully recycled back into high-grade paper.
Lots of competitors are not interested in finishers' medals so they are now optional. A £2 charity donation is made for every medal not selected.
Swim hats are provided for open water swimming events as they help the water safety teams keep track of swimmers. However for all pool events, swim hats are now on request to reduce wastage.
Reusable zip ties are used and all rubbish is sorted for recycling after the event.
At the Burrator 10K running race those who commit to walking or cycling to the event get £5 discount.
I will definitely come back next year! Michael K
