Piccolo route:

The Piccolo route is the shortest and easiest route option on the Dartmoor Classic Sportive. It is intended as a less competitive and less daunting challenge than the other routes. For this reason entry numbers are limited to a maximum of 500. The route starts with a 2.3 mile guided section from Newton Abbot racecourse to Clay Pits Way. You will complete this section in small groups, each with a ride-guide. On reaching Clay pits Way you will see our 'Timing Towers', from here you will ride at your own pace, following the signed and marshalled course. The Piccolo route has its own Feed Station at Moretonhampstead, which you will reach after cycling the first 19 miles. Here the Piccolo Route merges with the Medio & Grande routes to return past the Clay Pits Way Timing Towers. From here its just another 2.6 miles back to Newton Abbot racecourse where you will receive your well earned finisher's medal and goodies. The Piccolo route is officially timed for safety purposes and will be published for those interested in their personal ride times.
