this week’s ride is for Sportive training and takes on some of the main climbs and sections of the Dartmoor Classic. From our usual starting place B and Q ,9am, we ride out to Ashburton , up Holne Chase and on to Princetown. We descend Pork to Tavy , then we ride the western section of the classic looping through Lydford , and back up Pork/ Merrivale to Princetown. Then back home. If anyone wants to meet in Ivybridge post below and wait enroute. Cafe stop is at Foxtor , at about 68 miles with the idea of being able to complete sportives and to practise getting the fuelling right. Ride distance about 85miles. Plenty of options for cutting the route short. Route posted below.
