We went for a bike ride on Dartmoor yesterday – starting near Haytor and then weaving through the lanes to the Moretonhamstead – Postbridge road. Started in the dry but the rain wasn’t far behind. Our first bike ride on Dartmoor for ages, we had forgotten how hilly it was …..
Amazingly we were overtaken on a hill by a chap on a bike going 3-4x as fast as us – very impressive – he said hello but I was too puffed to reply. I wonder who that was? – a pro or a former pro I would say …. – just checked Strava – Jonathan Teirnan Locke did part of the same route yesterday too – makes sense! Good luck JTL for next season?
Here is our route – the hills on Dartmoor before the Warren House Inn are brutal!
We will be back onto Dartmoor soon with some better weather and stronger legs….
