The Course:

Starting at the Plessey Semiconductors Ltd facility in Roborough, Plymouth, this 105 mile route takes you through scenic Devon. Passing by the idyllic town of Tavistock, across the moors to Okehampton, onto Crediton and then down into Exeter. The ride continues from Exeter crossing the River Exe, the route heads towards Chudleigh and down into Bovey Tracey for a rest stop. Then it’s time to take on the challenge of the monumental Haytor in all its glory. Once you’ve accomplished this, its nearly plain sailing all the way home with just one more long and steady climb into Princetown, across the moors and finally downhill all the way back to the finish line.
