Discover the Dartmoor Way via the High Moor Link

28 July @ 9:15 am - 5:30 pm

£15

Discover the Dartmoor Way via the High Moor Link: (This ride has been added following the shortening of the same ride on 2 June due to poor weather on the moor). Join Sustainable South Brent, PL21 Transition Town and Sustrans volunteers on a 50 mile/9 hour guided bike ride at an easy pace to discover the heart of Dartmoor. It is a circular route, with a choice of 2 starts/finishes – either the Watermark Centre, Ivybridge PL21 0SZ at 9.15am or the Old School Community Centre South Brent at 10.00am. We will follow National Cycle Network Routes 2, 272 and 27 along the Dartmoor Way and over the High Moor Link, visiting Buckfastleigh-Holne-Hexworthy-Princetown-Burrator-Cornwood-Harford, along scenic lanes with stunning views. From secret river valleys and ancient woodlands, we cycle through little villages then climb up 5,400ft onto the high moors passing ancient tors to find Dartmoor’s highest town. This ride is moderate to challenging in difficulty with some steep hills, but we will cycle at an easy pace with rest breaks on route including for lunch. Don’t forget to bring your camera as there will be time to stop and take pictures too. Rides are open to anyone, but you need to be reasonably fit and be prepared for changeable weather. E-bikes welcome but please bring your charger. Children age 12 years and over will be welcome but must be fit and accompanied by a parent. A back-up car will be provided. It is advisable to pre-book 24 hours beforehand; a suggested donation of £15 is payable on booking (there is no charge for anyone who has already made a donation for the previous ride, but please register anyway).
