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: - 8th April 2018 START: 09.30 am

GOOD NEWS! The 2018 Devon Dirt is open for business.
THREE categories of event this year. As well as the FULL Devon Dirt ride which we expect most people will want to ride, we are also offering the option of the Devon Dirt LITE, which is just the first loop around the lanes and tracks West of Ashburton.
The third option is for those of you that use eMTB's - the Devon Dirt BUZZ.
If we have enough entries for the BUZZ category then we will run them as a separate group, if not then probably with the main ride.

This years route is broadly similar to 2017, but with the moorland loop run in the betterclockwise direction. There is some discussion at present as to one prt of the course which has suffered errosion, when we have agreed an alternative then we will publish the route including a GPX file.
ALSO - this year's event has been nominated as part of the Cycling UK "Challenge Series", which means that as well as your commemorative T-shirt and other bits, you'll get a Challenge medal, and other goodies courtesy of CUK Head Office!
