Info for Riders

The KinesisUK Hell of the West Sportive offers a day of trails, moorland tracks and a few ‘special’ sections thrown in for good measure - a tough but rewarding ride. Dartmoor has some stunning riding, some brutal climbs, fast flowing descents and plenty of great off-road. The terrain is a mix of road and off road so for the more confident rider a cross bike will probably be the best choice, but if you are new to riding off road or you just don’t have a cross bike then a mountain bike will be fine. The route is one 80km single loop that traverses Dartmoor from Bovey to Princetown with a special section looping back to Princetown before the descent back to Bovey. Gold time riders will be entered into a raffle to win a Kinesis Pro-Six frame, spot prize raffle for all riders and a glass of Dartmoor Ale at the finish for everyone too.
