CYCLISTS from all over the country hit the roads of Devon on Sunday for the annual Dartmoor Classic Sportive.

The event, organised and run by the Mid-Devon Cycling Club, is one of the most prestigious open-road cycling event in the UK.

Some 4,000 cyclists compete over a choice of three routes – Grande (107 miles /173 km), Medio (67 miles /109 km) and Piccolo (38 miles /62 km).

All the routes start at Newton Abbot Racecourse. The famous ‘Grande’ race takes riders to Bovey Tracey, Ashburton, Two Bridgers, Princetown, Dousland, Tavistock, Chillaton, Lydford, Mary Tavy, Postbridge, Mortenhampstead and back to Newton Abbot.

It takes in some of the most stunning scenary to be found in and around Dartmoor National Park, but also features some of the toughest cycling routes in the country.
