**LATEST** Will lead this route or something similar tomorrow morning 4th May leaving B&Q at
No wimping out tomorrow!! 😉
Now that we’re in to May it can mean only one thing…you guessed, only 7 weeks to the Classic! So it’s time to really get stuck in to some Dartmoor Classic training!
With that in mind this week we’ll tackle the early and lumpy first leg of the Classic route. So it’s the usual route to Bovey Tracey before we start the serious stuff with the Classic climb of Haytor. Dropping down towards Pear Tree we turn and head along the River Dart and then it’s the second big climb as we head up Holne and on to Vennford. Heading on towards the B3212 we turn towards Two Bridges, Princetown and back to HQ.
Total route is around 72 miles and has around 7500ft of climbing. Suggested cafe stop is Foxtor but it’s a long way in at 58 miles so we may want to stop earlier and as usual open to suggestions. Given the distance and climbing we will definitely keep the pace steady, well, we’ll try anyway 🙂
