Dartmoor has some of the best climbs in the country which is why it regularly features as the decisive Queen stage in the Tour of Britain. Four of its ascents feature in Simon Warrens’ 100 Greatest Climbs (in Britain).
In a bid to get cycle-fit during 2016, I am going to do a guide to all the big climbs in and around Dartmoor. Here is a list which includes some of the most scenic cycling in the UK.
|Pork Hill||Rundlestone (Merrivale to Princetown)||Dartmeet (aka Coffin Stone)|
|Haytor||Widecombe to Haytor||Batteridge Hill|
|Tor Down Hill (Belstone)||Doccombe Hill||Yelverton to Princetown|
This is my starter for 10! Have I missed any great Dartmoor climbs? – please tweet me your views and I will add to the list
