Event Details

Are you ready to  take on the toughest cycling challenge in the South West? There is only one route option available and that is the full 200 mile ULTRA with it’s 18,000 ft of climbing. 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.

All participants must register online in advance of the event. There will be no entry-on-the-day. Entries are limited to 200 places. One month prior to the ULTRA Sportive you will receive a detailed Ride Manual with all the information you will need for taking part in the event. The Event HQ opens the day before for participants to register & collect their Ride Packs.

The Dartmoor Legend will start from Princetown, the very heart of Dartmoor National Park. All participants must start between 04:00 hrs and 05:00 hrs on Saturday 9th July 2022 and are required to finish by midnight. The time limit of 20 hrs (from 4 am) is based on an average of 10mph including all stops & breaks!


(Saturday) 4:00 am - 12:00 pm
