Currently it looks like the Legend may take a break in 2024 but we hope to return the following year.
Are you ready to take on the toughest one day ultra cycling challenge in the *UK? It’s 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, now offered to all distances, mean friends & relatives will be able to ‘dot watch’ and see your progress online during the event.
By popular demand we’ve added shorter options too. New for 2024 is our 149 mile Fondo option. It’s a tough challenge but a bit more achievable and with a more civilised 7.30am start time than the full Legend. The 74 mile Leggero and the 92 mile Mezzofondo also return. They are still tough challenges & 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. The Event HQ opens the day before for participants to register & collect their Ride Packs. Or we have emergency registration which opens at 3.30a
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 8th July 2023 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!
