Cycling Weekly Dartmoor Demon

Be prepared for an eyeful of Devon’s most glorious countryside in the Dartmoor Demon. Straight from the off, you’ll be marvelling at the stunning Haldon Forest before heading down the River Teign.

Please note that the routes for this event are currently being plotted, with the addition of a short route for 2017. The distances advertised are what we are aiming to achieve but they may vary by a couple of miles. We will announce via our newsletter (sign up at the foot of this page), Facebook and Twitter when the new routes are live.

It won't be long before you see the last of civilisation for a few hours as the circle around and through Dartmoor National Park begins, which lead through quiet and sprawling lanes on undulating terrain.

As much as the moors are sparse, there’s enough to keep you interested as you tackle the short and punchy climbs throughout – not forgetting a few long ascents as well. Old brick bridges and deserted roads make up most of the scenery on the road as you pass through the National Park – before meeting and skirting around the ever-eerie and element-exposed HM Prison Dartmoor in Princetown.

Flatter terrain waits in the far side of the Park, while the pinch point of Buckfastleigh signals the start of the most testing climbing action that this event has to offer. Crossing the River Dart is a prelude to the 25% climb that faces rides coming out of Poundsgate.

The toughest part of the Dartmoor Demon sportive done, it’s not over yet as two more 20% ascents sit between the toughest climbing of the day and a finisher’s medal. Heading back through Haldon Forest to the racecourse finish point, every rider crossing the line will have a story to tell from a tough but rewarding day out riding.

Key Information

Kids Ride For Free

We want to encourage young riders to enjoy the pleasure of cycling. That's why all riders under 16 years ride for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Valid ID will be requested on the day.

Online pre-entry

Online pre-entry is the easiest way of entering and saves £5.00 per person vs. entering on the day. Online pre-entry will save you time on the day of the event allowing you to simply pick up your registration pack from the Pre entered registration points. Please note: If an event reaches its capacity we will have to close the event to riders wanting to enter on the day. It is therefore best to pre enter online to avoid disappointment!

Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
