Friendly guided bike ride to meet (and hopefully picnic with) residents at Hannahs School at Ivybridge - a great way to gain confidence in cycling and meet new people in our area.  Hannahs at Ivybridge is home to a School, Respite Centre, Community Hub, Children’s Home and Hannahwood – an innovative transition project for older students. The ride is open to everyone but you need to be reasonably fit and be prepared for changeable weather. Please pre-book 24 hours beforehand - see: http://www.sustrans.org.uk/events/ivybridge-guided-bike-ride.


Guided bike ride to discover the Dartmoor Way: Join us on a fantastic guided bike ride led by Sustrans volunteers to discover the heart of delightful Dartmoor. Starting in Ivybridge or South Brent, we'll follow scenic lanes with stunning views to discover some of Dartmoor’s finest landscapes. From secret river valleys and ancient woodlands, we'll cycle through little villages and climb up onto the high moors passing ancient tors to find Dartmoor's highest town. There will be several stops including a well-deserved lunch break. We'll be following National Cycle Network Routes 2; 272 and 27 and other quiet roads to enjoy the countryside. The route is a circular ride of 50 miles and we'll climb 5,000ft. Time allowed for this event is eight hours. We will cycle at an easy pace with rest breaks on route. There will be time to stop and take pictures too. This ride is of moderate to challenging difficulty with some steep hills and is open to anyone, but you need to be reasonably fit and be prepared for changeable weather. A back up car will be provided. Choice of starts and finish will be at the same place:

Meet for 10am start at The Old School Community Centre, Totnes Road, South Brent, TQ10 9BP (or meet for 9.15am start at the Watermark Centre, Leonard's Road, Ivybridge, PL21 0SZ). See: www.sustrans.org.uk/events/guided-bike-ride-discover-dartmoor-way.
