Haunting starts at 10.30pm
Dartmoor Ghost is an overnight bike ride organised by the CTC in Devon,
which visits many haunted places on Dartmoor.
The 154km route takes you from Bovey Tracey over Dartmoor via quiet lanes and "B" Roads. to Yelverton for a food and rest stop.
Under the ethereal light of the fullish moon, experience the wonder of the open Dartmoor roads, & visit numerous 'haunted' locations on your way.
The Start is from Hind Street House, Hind Street, Bovey Tracey, TQ13 9HT. The finish is at The Brookside Team Rooms, also in Bovey Tracey Full English Breakfast is included in your entry fee, it will not be available until after 7am. Food will also be available at Yelverton, and a slice of pizza will be provided at the start.
The maximum speed is 22.5kph, the Brookside opens at 6.30, if you finish before then obtain parking ticket as proof of arrival. If there is no controller at Whiddon Down, obtain a purchase receipt for proof of your arrival time.
There are a mixture of country lanes, main roads, and optional cycle tracks (including a tunnel), and few street lights, so good reliable lights are essential.
The only shop open on the route is at 40km, so you will need to be self-sufficient, there is also a control with food and sleeping space at 90km.
The event is run as an Audax, so there is a minimum and maximum speed limit, and there are control points including information sites that need to be visited.
