Event Details

Are you ready to take on the toughest one day cycling challenge in the *UK? Tougher than the Yorkshire Beast, tougher than the long Dragon Ride & much tougher than the Majorca 312!

Princetown is renowned for taking prisoners but the Dartmoor Legend takes none! This epic route is against a pace clock. You will pass through Princetown three times, on each occasion, any rider who falls behind the minimum pace to finish by midnight will be required to retire from the event. Our GPS trackers mean friends & relatives will be able to ‘dot watch’ and see your progress online during the event. The full distance is a full 200 mile ULTRA with 18,000 ft of climbing.

By popular demand we’ve now added a shorter Dartmoor Legend Leggero & Mezzofondo routes. They’re 74 & 92 miles respectively but still include many of Dartmoor’s most iconic climbs.

All participants must register online in advance of the event. There will be no entry-on-the-day. Entries are limited to 200 places per event. The Event HQ opens the day before for participants to register & collect their Ride Packs.


(Saturday) 4:00 am - 10:00 pm(GMT-11:00)
