The Devon Dirt:
The Devon Dirt is an annual event, witha 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.
NUMBERS: 2017 numbers will be issued at the start.
If you are pre-enetered then your number is on this list <<HERE>>
Note: T- shirts will be issues with correct sizes for those who enetered before
4th April. We may have a couple of spares of random sizes for later entriers but no guarantee.
SPOT PRIZES: We will giving some prizes away on the event. These may be randomly chosen on the rider number, or to reward special effort - e.g. a youngster completing for the first time.
