A truly epic challenge across 200 miles of Dartmoor roads & lanes. All the iconic climbs are on the route including Dartmeet, Doccombe, Haytor, Holne, Merrivale, Newbridge, Peak Hill, Pork Hill, Widecombe & more! Some of these roads have gradients hitting 25%.
That said the Dartmoor Legend is not about taking you up grueling little back lanes, it is a journey to showcase the very best cycling roads that Dartmoor has to offer. Yes the route is challenging but the scenery and views are as breathtaking as the hills!
There are three route options available, with the full 200-mile ULTRA (18,000 ft of climbing) now joined by two new, shorter distances for 2022.
These are the Mezzofondo at 92 miles, and the Leggero at 74 miles.
Although shorter they are by no means easy options. They have a more civilised starting time and can be completed on less training but still include many of Dartmoor's most iconic climbs!
How will the Dartmoor Legend ULTRA Sportive run?
All participants must register online in advance of the event. There will be no entry-on-the-day. Entries are limited to 200 places.

The Event HQ will open on the afternoon of Friday 8th July 2022 for participants to attend and collect their Ride Pack. The Event HQ is located at the Princetown Community Centre, PL20 6RF.
