DARTMOOR: AN ANCIENT LANDSCAPE

Tom Fenton heads to south-west England and the plentiful, but hard-won, delights of Dartmoor and a strong contender for his ‘best riding anywhere’ award.

TRAIL HUNTER EXPLORES THOSE MUST-DO RIDES THAT SHOULD BE ON EVERY BRITISH MOUNTAIN BIKER’S BUCKET LIST.

Ever get a bit overwhelmed by choice in a restaurant? You quite fancy the pizza, but the burger looks good and whatever they’re having on the table over there smells delicious. You sit, paralysed by indecision and the waiter says he’ll come back to you and now everyone else has ordered and it’s your turn…

I get so overwhelmed in restaurants that I’ve turned vegetarian.This way, instead of ten options, I have two: chilli or risotto. I don’t like risotto, so my decision is made. Stressfree dining.

Writing route guides is the same. You want to pick the best trails and find the perfect ride, but, inevitably, all the good trails end at the same place, or run in the same direction. You can’t include them all, just one or two. But which? Potential loops spin round and round in your head, driving you nuts. And this time, there’s no veggie option.

These ‘Trail Hunter’ articles are about finding the best trails in the UK, which potentially makes them the most stressful of all. So I’m going to cheat.This particular article is about Dartmoor. Specifically, Lustleigh Cleave.
