Bike BuS to HOUND TOR & Cycle Ride: BIG BIKE REVIVAL
August 7, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
FREE minibus and bike-trailer transport for you and your bike up onto Dartmoor National Park for a FREE guided ride. Plus, a short talk from Richard Knott, Dartmoor National Park ecologist, on a wildflower meadow on the moor, and a stop for a picnic lunch (bring a packed lunch).
Your cycle ride will start at HOUND TOR, one of Dartmoor’s iconic granite outcrops with nearby ruins of a medieval village. The cycle route will go via Harefoot Cross, Hemsworthy Gate and Cold East Cross, joining the Dartmoor Way (NCN272), via Waterleat, Ashburton and return to Buckfastleigh.
The ride will be led at an easy pace and the route means it is all downhill from Hound Tor.

We hope you can join us for a fun ride!
