On the day that Chris Frome was riding victoriously into Paris, North Devon was holding its own mini tour. In its fifth year, the Two Moors 100 cycle sportive ride was a great success, with nearly 300 riders setting off in the sunshine from Bideford for a round tour of Exmoor and Dartmoor. Riders of all abilities came from across the UK to take part in the 60 or 100 mile event, which is not held as a race but as a challenge, with regular food and drink stops and a course mechanic making it accessible to inexperienced riders. The Two Moors 100 is organised by the Rotary Club of Bideford Bridge who had over 35 volunteers manning the feed-stations and safety vehicles all over Devon. Initial estimates suggest over £5,000 has been raised for charity. The first riders on the 60 mile course, Phil Walker and Anthony Green, arrived back in 3 hrs 26 mins, while the first woman back was Tania Brackenbury in 3 hrs 47 mins. Steve James was fastest on the 100 mile course, finishing in 5 hrs 55 mins and the first female was Karen Gear in 7 hrs 8 mins. The last rider returned after a gruelling 10 hours, but they were still smiling.
