Faces from Plymouth's Tour De Moor cycle challenge across Dartmoor
Over 1,000 took part in the sporting event at the weekend
- 12:00, 9 OCT 2023
Over 1,000 cyclists saddled up on Sunday (October 8) for the St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth’s Tour de Moor across Dartmoor. Riders of all ages and abilities turned the moor blue in support of local families affected by terminal illness.
Negotiating the rugged wilds of the moor, 686 participants pitted their two-wheel skills against the toughest, hill-filled terrain for 52km, while 237 took it down a gear for the brand new 33km Granite and Gears Cycle Trail route. Another 138 opted for a gentler, family-friendly 11km ride along the tarmac paths of Drake’s Trail.
Taking on the 33km was Sam Downing, 37, cycling in memory of his dad, Trevor Downing from Plympton, and his cousin David Lawrence from Bigbury, who both received care from St Luke’s nursing teams, as well as friend Godfrey Jay from Cornwall. Sam said: “It’s all about doing something to give back to the people who helped care for them." Sam raised more than £200 in sponsorship and was riding alongside work colleague Rhys.
He added: "My cousin David passed away just about a month ago and this would have been his 34th birthday, so it feels good to be able to do Tour de Moor today. He had care from St Luke’s at home. Dad had prostate cancer and he was in and out of St Luke’s at Turnchapel two or three times in the last six months of his life.”

Tour de Moor 2023
Category: CSR , News Oct 12, 2023
Last Sunday, a group of our employees braved the Tour de Moor 2023, a charity mountain bike ride in aid of St Luke’s Hospice. The route included the dreaded widow maker, which climbs 200m over 4km. Thankfully, the weather held out, and the riders got a lovely sunny day! Everyone in the team seemed to have a wonderful time and enjoyed the atmosphere. Some highlight photos are below.
Mark, one of our Equipment Team Leaders, spearheaded the group from Plessey, riding with his dog Bella in the front. When we asked for his feelings on the event, he said, “What an excellent day. Weather ace and over 1000 riders taking part to raise money for our local St Luke’s Hospice – many with their own personal reasons for helping this charity, including me who lost my dad to pancreatic cancer 15 years ago. He was given wonderful domiciliary care from this charity. The route was as per usual super-hilly and Bella enjoyed her third consecutive year doing this event – and brought a smile to all those many riders we passed 😊”
Congrats to all the riders! If you’d like to donate, please click here .
