BEYOND DEVON SPORTIVE
Cycling in Devon means skimming through wonderful scenery on amazing cycle routes, through unspoilt villages and wild moorlands.
We have tried to make the course open and free flowing, with some superb views out across the Devon countryside, we cross the river Exe in various places all of which will make excellent selfies and as you head back to the finish there are views across to Dartmoor.

With aid stations and on course support, you ride, we will help you finish.
