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 a Cycling UK Challenge
medal and you keep your frame number.

14th April 2019 - 9.30am
The 2019 event is done and dusted - many thanks to all of you who turned up on a grey and cold day. Quite a range of ages and abilities which is always good to see.
Only one injury that we are aware of and that was a dislocated finger.

Huge thanks to the local helpers from Cyclink UK,
who hopefully have thawed out by now.
See you in 2020!
