The Devon Dirt:

The Devon Dirt is an annual event, with a mixture of off road tracks and country lanes, usually between 55Km and 70Km.
It's organised by CTC Devon in association with BigPeaks at Ashburton.

It's a non-competitive challenge - i.e. we want everybody to get round the course in their own time safely, and enjoy a great day off road in Devon.

The organisers offer limited support to help you get around the course, we provide feeding stations, usually with cold drinks and cakes along the route, and BigPeaks supply a mechanic in case you have a breakdown.
You should however be self sufficient in terms of food and basic repairs, and it's a good idea to ride with a small group or a friend if possible.


Finishers get a commemorative T-shirt( paid for by your entry fee), together with a certificate, and you keep your frame number.

2018 EVENT:



This years event from our point of view was a great success. Over 300 entered on a dry day with some ideal conditions for a good Devon Dirt ride.
We hope you enjoyed the day and will come back and do it all again sometime.
We are still in the process of mopping up and sorting out a few glitches like a shortage of Tshirts for some riders, but a big thankyou to all of you who took part, and particular thanks to the team of CTC helpers, the staff at Bigpeaks, LemonJelli and their Hi-van creperie, Country Kitchen from Torquay ( Bakers), staff at Cycling UK head office and all those ivolved in making the event run.

Feedback so far has been good, and we are not aware of any particular issues in relation to this years ride.

There will be some vieo footage incuding some aerial shots being posted in the next few days, keep a look out on our social media pages for that. In the meantime safe riding and hope to see many of you in 2019.
