Dartmoor is about more than the usual suspects, and of course our route will still pass them - Burrator Dam, Haytor Rocks, etc. But we have tried to find a route that's about visiting places on Dartmoor you wouldn't normally see. We have open spaces, great riding lanes, superb climbs, stunning views, beautiful rivers, stunning woodland, quaint villages... the special place that is Dartmoor - and all seen from the saddle. Two distance options.
Okehampton Rugby Club, Okehampton, Devon EX20 1SW
Oakhampton is located just 2km off the A30, with direct links to Exeter (23m) and Plymouth (30m).
Short 101km (62 Miles)
This route will take you from Okehampton and skirt the western edge of the Moor. Although initially not on Dartmoor this is a lovely start to the ride, with plenty of wide roads, and woodland to cycle through.
Medium 131km (80 Miles)
The longer ride will take you marginally over 125km, so not only can you ride Dartmoor, but you also get to hit a riding milestone. The ride itself is around and through Dartmoor National Park, and will follow portions of the 2016 Tour of Britain, which will include the ride up and past Haytor rocks.
Both routes will start and finish at Okehampton Rugby Club
Each ride is a beautiful tour of the Devon countryside. We are not into rushing you, so take as long as you need - take it all in and enjoy the ride.
