The Dartmoor Devil @ 9


105km cycling event starting from Bovey Tracey. Controls at Globe Inn, Chagford, Fox Tor Cafe, Princetown and Dolphin Inn, Bovey Tracey., plus 1 information control.

A scenic ride that criss-crosses Dartmoor, with big views and big hills. Soup control at Chagford, café control at Princetown plus a cake checkpoint.

Test yourself on one of the classic gold Grimpeur rides. Starting at The Dolphin Hotel in Bovey Tracey, the ‘Gateway to Dartmoor’, and climbing onto the high moor via pretty villages, narrow lanes, steep hills and a soup stop. The Devil finishes back at The Dolphin in Bovey Tracey after tackling the infamous Widecombe Hill.
The soup and roll are included, but bring some change for the control at Fox Tor Café and the cake checkpoint (donations in aid of Devon Air Ambulance). Cycling Weekly included the Dartmoor Devil in its list of top ten audaxes to challenge yourself with. Although a tough ride, the atmosphere is relaxed and Halloween related fancy-dress is welcome. There are two start options: the Dartmoor Devils @8 and @9. Choose your preferred event and if it is full you will be moved to the other start.
