Win fabulous prizes at the Dartmoor Classic 2017

Written by

This coming weekend is the 2017 version of the Dartmoor Classic Cycle Sportive, probably one of the premier cycle sportives in the UK. Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton has been a charity partner of the Classic for over 6 years and this year we will once again be raffling fabulous prizes in the event draw.

Dartmoor Classic Prizes 1024x768

Since 2012 over £12,000 has been donated to the team thanks to the generosity of the organisers and participants of the Dartmoor Classic. This amazing support has undoubtedly enabled us to save lives of those in need on Dartmoor and across South and East Devon. Read more about the prizes below.

TOP Prize – A custom built Aske bike worth over £2,000

Simon Aske is going to custom build a bike for the lucky winner, giving them a unique steel frame bike designed around them. Aske Bikes produce hand-made steel frames with a custom geometry for every customer. The main objective of Aske Bikes is to give the customer a personal frame using personal desired steel as well as a choice in paint work.

We are extremely grateful to MDCC, the Dartmoor Classic organisers Madison UK and Simon Aske for donating such a fabulous top prize and the ongoing support to the team.

2nd Prize – Luxurious Bovey Castle golf and lunch package worth £400

The lovely people at Bovey Castle have kindly supported the team with Dartmoor Classic prizes for many years and we are extremely grateful for them for the support again this year.

3rd Prize – Paramo Ciclo Light Jacket worth £160

The Ciclo is ideal for very active outdoors people who cycle in all weathers and would like a jacket suitable for other activities too. 


The Ciclo Light is ideal for active outdoors people who cycle in all weathers and would like a jacket suitable for other activities too.

If you enjoy cycling and high energy activities in all weathers, you need a versatile jacket for wind and rain protection, which also removes perspiration and condensation and allows you to keep cool when working hard.

The cycling-friendly design is combined with Nikwax Analogy Light fabric for optimum comfort. It provides waterproof protection plus moisture and temperature control in one weight-efficient garment.

Paramo has been an active supporter of our team for many years and we would like to extend our thanks to them for the amazing ongoing support.

4th Prize – Enjoy a day at the beautiful Powderham Castle with a Family ticket (2 adults and 2 children).

Powderham Castle is set in a beautiful deer park on the stunning Exe Estuary and is the home of the Earl and Countess of Devon and the family ticket will give you access to the house and gardens.

5th Prize – ‘Gold Trek and Taste’ at Sharpham Wine and Cheese.

Enjoy a self-directed tour of the vineyard together with an informal tasting of our wine and cheese. The vineyard is set in a stunning location on the bank of the River Dart producing world class wine and cheese.

Thanks to all the above organisations and business’ for their wonderful support to our fundraising efforts this year. Without this support the team would cease to exist and our ability to help those in need and essentially save lives, would be seriously impeded.

You can buy your tickets, just £1 a go, from our team members who will be at the Registration Village at Newton Abbot racecourse on Saturday afternoon 1st July from 12:30 and Sunday 2nd July between 11:00 – 16:00. They will also be available from our team stand that will be next to Colin Lewis Cycles in the village. The draw will be made over the PA around 16:00 on the Sunday afternoon. All lucky winners will be contacted very soon afterwards with their prizes.

Good luck to all participants, it’s going to be another fabulous event.
