Two Moors Sportive – Sunday 17th July

Well now that you’ve all recovered (?) from the Dartmoor Classic perhaps you’d like to try another sportive – the Two Moors 100.

YOGi Cycling has supported this event for the last 2 years. We treat it as a team building event and ride a one or two groups. The terrain, though not exactly flat, does feature some rolling sections that are well suited to the Yogi Train!

We usually camp at a nearby site and go for all go for a meal together the evening before.  If you’d like to join us please post in the comments section below.

The event is organised by the Rotary Club, so your £27 entry fee goes to charity. There is a choice of 100k or 100 miles (we usual go this) starting and finishing in Bideford, North Devon climbing briefly onto Exmoor before heading for Okehampton on the northern edge of Dartmoor.

    Great fun last year, I’m in for this year!

  2. Sharon Monk says:

    We did the 100 miles last year and I have to say I found that easier than the 100 miles dartmoor classic. Sadly, can’t do it this year as we will be coming back from the Maratona.

    I’d be mojo’d up for this one.

  4. Richard Woods says:

    Do you know where you plan to stay? – do they have anywhere for people without tents to stay?

      Last time we camped at Steart Farm. Some people slept in tents, Dave Elliott in his van and either one or two in their cars. Good pub where we had dinner nearby called the Hoops.

    Loved this last year. I was just great riding in a group. I hope to make it.

  6. Mike Deacon says:

    I’ll be there again this year. Nice to do a Sportive in a slightly more relaxed atmosphere, and to ride as a team

  7. Simon Pope says:

    Gutted! Just agreed to marshall at the Plymouth Tri that day 😡

  8. Andy Powell says:

    Outside chance I could be there
    Just had my stiches out of my hand and some grip again so there is a small possibility I will be there albeit I will probably be on a hybrid as drop bars may not be a good idea till next month so will stay with you as far as I can if feel fit to go

  9. Adrian Smart says:

    Despite the terrible weather I did this, I finish in 6 hours 22 minutes but someone had sabotaged one of the signs which sent a number of riders off course – me included but luck was on my side as someone just behind knew the route and put me right.

  10. Bob Chilvers says:

    Yes, the weather was terrible and the only word to describe the event is ‘brutal’. However as with all events like this I will be there next year. I also ended up doing additional miles – 110.78 to be precise. I took one and a half hours more than Adrian but finished with a smile.

    Glad I did the 100k after reading above !
