Dartmoor Classic Sportive - Sunday 26th June 2016 The Dartmoor Classic is a non-commercial Sportive cycling challenge promoted by the Mid-Devon Cycling Club. The organising committee are all club volunteers who share a passionate for cycling and embrace the vision to stage the best Sportive experience in the UK.

The Dartmoor Classic offers a choice of three routes:

  • The Grande (107 miles / 173 km)
  • The Medio (68 miles / 110 km)
  • The Debutante (35 miles / 54 km)

The Grande and Medio routes are open to all, whilst the Debutante is a women only route, run in support of British Cycling Breeze Rides.

All routes start and finish from our ' Welcome Village', at Newton Abbot Racecourse. Every cyclist participating in the Dartmoor Classic can be confident that they will be fully supported from start to finish. Prior to commencing their ride, each participant is issued with a unique 'Rider Number' and 'Disposable Timing Chip'. These are used to identify the cyclists participating in the event and to record when they start and finish.

There are also timing check points along the routes that are used to monitor the riders progress. All routes are clearly signed and marshalled. Route maps are given to every participant and electronic routes are available to download in a variety of formats for those with Satelite Navigation Systems.

At our Welcome Village we have mechanics available to help should you find you have a problem with your bike when you arrive. There are also cycling retail stands where you will be able to purchase essential kit items should you find that you have forgotten to pack them. Once you have commenced your ride, we will have mechanics, medics, and support crews partolling the course. You will also have our emergency contact number (on the rear of your rider number) and you can use this to contact us for assistance should the need arise. Each route has well stocked feed stations offering drinks and a wide range of quality foods and specialist energy products.
