Oh Dear - you appear to have logged in to Devon CTC's DARTMOOR DEVIL PAGES!

Now you have entered a new realm, - one which you may never leave.  TEMPTATION is irresistable as "Old Nick" lures you to
Bovey Tracey on HALLOWEEN weekend - 25th October 2015.

2016 EVENT AND REPORT HERE
A total of 163 riders started this year’s classic 100km Audax
from The Crowwell Arms in Bovey Tracey.
Almost perfect cycling weather meant that for most it was a straightforward ride over the hills of Dartmoor with 152 completing the ride inside time.
4 riders completed out of time and 7 packed.
Once again huge thanks to the organisers and the team of helpers.

If you have not been initiated let us enlighten you. The Dartmoor Devil is no ordinary bicycle ride. For the twenty firts year a hoard of cyclists will ride 60+ miles across the dizzy heights of Dartmoor, riding through the mists, along lanes strewn with the debris of recent storms, (#)battling the wind on the exposed road to Princetown,(#) and the final climb up Widecombe Hill....
(Log out now if you dare - or read on!)

You will find around another 200 people like yourself have been lured to the start of this gruelling event, their only comfort being a bowl of Soup and a crust of bread in a sheltered pub along the route.


This year features a testing route - 2013 saw a good rate of finishers, with strong Southerly winds and some very heavy downpours..
Two start times available 8am & 9am.
Note that the finish is at Manaton, on the moors, so you will need your lights to get the four miles back down to Bovey Tracey, unless you have a lift or car already there!
Check these pages for details of entry in 2013 and get your entry in VERY EARLY.
WHETHER YOU ARE A HARDENED ROAD MAN, OR A TOUGH OFF-ROAD MOUNTAINBIKER, OR AN AUDAX STALWART, OR SPORTIF SPEEDSTER, YOUR CYCLING ABILITIES HAVE NEVER REALLY BEEN TESTED UNTIL YOU HAVE BEATEN THE DEVIL!!
THERE IS ONLY ONE DARTMOOR DEVIL!

Be sure to fit your bike with mudguards (advisory!) and lights (essential), - bring plenty of food, waterproofs,
at least 2 spare tubes
, a repair kit and tools, and a spare pair of socks
and a dry T shirt may come in handy. Pub food definitely available at the finish.

( IT CAN BE A CHILLY DESCENT BACK DOWN TO BOVEY AFTER THE STOP AT KESTOR INN)
