Tour de Moor
Sunday 15 October 2017, 8.30 am
Master the moors
Call yourself a cyclist? Fancy a challenge? We are inviting the toughest of cyclists to master the moors on Sunday 15 October, as you take on our annual Tour de Moor challenge. There will be mud, sweat and plenty of gears in action as mountain bike riders take to the moors to embark on a cycle ride like no other.
Sponsored by Print Copy Scan, a local supplier of printers and copiers, the ride will encompass challenging off-road moorland trails set amongst the spectacular scenery of Dartmoor. Choose between our intermediate 23km route or if you’re feeling brave enough, tackle the hills up to Princetown on the 52km route, your cycling skills will definitely be put to the ultimate test.
For a much more gentle route, featuring a mixture of tarmac paths and off-road trails, we invite you to try the family friendly 11km ride along Drake’s Trail, suitable for anyone with a bike.
The Tour de Moor challenge departs from and finishes at Harrowbeer Airfield, near Yelverton at 8.30am. Once again this year the route will go around the beautiful surroundings of Buckland Abbey, providing some tough terrain as you navigate your way through the woods and up some challenging hills. Registration is just £20 and includes a t shirt and finisher’s medal.
