The Route

There are three route options to choose from:

1) the Piccolo - 38 miles
2) the Medio - 68 miles
3) the Grande - 110 miles.

Both the Medio and Grande routes include Gold, Silver & Bronze medal standards, based on age and gender categories; plus a closed-road, timed, hill-climb segment, offering a more personalised challenge for the riders.

The shorter Piccolo route is intended to be a less competitive and less daunting option. Rider numbers are restricted to 500 and there are no age-related medal times to worry about. Piccolo riders still enjoy the full Dartmoor Classic experience with everyone receiving a Finishers' Medal.
