Watermark Centre, Leonards Road, Ivybridge, PL21 0SZ
Join Sustainable South Brent, PL21 Transition Town and Sustrans volunteers on a guided bike ride to discover the heart of Dartmoor.
Starting in Ivybridge or South Brent, we follow scenic lanes with stunning views to discover some of Dartmoor’s finest landscapes.
From secret river valleys and ancient woodlands, we cycle through little villages then climb up onto the high moors passing ancient torrs to find Dartmoor’s highest town.
The route is a circular ride of 50 miles and we climb 5,000ft. There will be several stops including for lunch.
Rides are open to anyone but you need to be reasonably fit and be prepared for changeable weather. A back up car will be provided.
