The route details (so far)
11th – 19th June 2022
Approximately 350 miles with approximately 8,500 metres of elevation.
Start and finish in the stunning Buckfastleigh right on the southern edge of Dartmoor.
Mixed terrain so therefore gravel or MTB is advised.
Designated and approved secure bivvy locations en-route.
We will take in as much off-road as possible while delivering some of the most scenic and iconic sights Devon and Cornwall can offer. The route has a lot of climbing some steep. It’s definitely a challenge but one you can tackle anyway you want to.
The route can take you away from resupply for prolonged periods of time. You are free to leave the route at any time to get supplies. In the spirit of the route, it’s best to rejoin where you left however this is not enforced in any way. Your safety must be your primary focus. It is advisable to stock up on food and water when available. There is often very little available at night.
