Description

Explore Dartmoor by bike with this laminated, waterproof Dartmoor map. With 10 brilliant, circular touring routes, this easy-to-use cycling map will take you off the beaten track and help you discover the best trails on Dartmoor. Each route has been chosen for its overall quality - a firm belief that bikes are for riding, the inclusion of technical difficulty for its own sake, or too much pushing or carrying, has been avoided wherever possible.

All are circular, and where possible start at, or near to, main roads or railway stations, to avoid creating extra motorised traffic on the quiet lanes that we are intending to travel. The direction chosen is intended to provide the best views, and more importantly, to keep the steepest and longest climbs on tarmac or similar surfaces, and the best downhills, off-road. The routes are made up as follows:Easy - Almost flat routes, usually around 10 miles in length and on good surfaces that in all but extreme conditions should be 100% rideable.

With easy navigation and any real climbs on tarmac, these are particularly suitable for beginners or family groups. Moderate - More challenging routes, generally of 12 to 15 miles over more undulating terrain and varied surfaces (possibly including mud when wet). More exciting downhills, and steeper climbs may need the occasional push.

More strenuous - Possibly longer routes with significant ascents which will certainly need pushing or carrying. Steep and/or technical, and rough and rocky descents. May cross high, remote moorland, requiring appropriate equipment and experience. Here's a collection of superbly varied and rideable routes to help you discover the best of Dartmoor by bike.
