From here there may be no return.
What awaits you is over 100Km of testing terrain, with well over 2000 metres of climbing, and descents along twisty lanes, probably coated with debris from autumnal storms. Make sure you prepare well for this classic event, hailed as
one of the top ten AUDAX rides in the UK.
Entry limited to 200 riders, with two phased starts at 8am and 9pm, with a bowl of soup half way around and a Moorland finish at the Kestor Inn in Manaton.

2019 EVENT REPORT

The 27th Dartmoor Devil got off to a great start with the usual throng of riders leaving the warmth of the
Brookside Tearooms scrabbling up the 1:5 Hind Street Hill in Bovey Tracey. There were some new lanes on the route, which was bathed in sunshine throughout the morning helping riders to dry off after numerous excursions through deep flood waters, a few gathering punctures along the way!
At Ashburton three varieties of delicious soup were on offer at The Lavender House Hotel, from where riders had another 1:5 climb up to Holne and back onto Dartmoor.
Around lunchtime the weather turned and it was raining steadily by the time many reached Princetown and the chance of further sustenance at the Foxtor Cafe. Luckily the wind was from the West so a good tailwind helped many to finish in good time, including Annemarie Winter from Bournemouth and Martyn Holmes who both achieved their 18th ( Third six - 666 ) Dartmoor Devil award, presented to her at the Kestor Inn at Manaton where the event finished. For some it was the first go at this hilly ride, and for others it was a regular annual bash - Graham Brodie completed his 24th Devil, and some achieved their " First Six" and "Second Six", but all were enjoyed the warmth of the pub at the finish and many rewarded themselves with a few drinks and a carvery before a cold descent back to Bovey Tracey
Our thanks to all the establishments highlighted above, and to all off you you came along and supported the event this year.
