Want to know more about the inaugural Dartmoor ?Classic? cyclo-sportive on May 13?

Then go the website www.dartmoorclassic.co.uk

This Mid Devon CC promotion is already a third full of entries for the two-distance event. You can either go for the full 100 miles, or 100 kilometres. Both are tough prospects, crossing the famous exposed wilderness of Dartmoor.

There is no truth to the rumour that riders who get dropped will be, a: sentenced to two weeks at HM?S pleasure in Dartmoor Prison, or b: left to the mercy of the Hound of the Baskervilles.

150 places have been reserved for debutantes who live in the county, to give regular riders who may never have ridden a sportive before the opportunity to try. This is the idea of the events funding partner, Devon County Council Travelwise.
