Wild Swim, Wild Ride | The Dartmoor Double
Lovely bit of British weather for today’s Wild Swim Ride but such a good day nonetheless. Laura and I took the mountain bikes up Dartmoor for a wild lake swim then had a bonus river dip on the way back. Please be careful, do your research and ensure you know what you’re doing if you intend to either wild swim or ride on Dartmoor in the mist.
Laura and I are experienced in doing this, both live locally and took back up maps, a First Aid kit, Emergency Blankets, tools and food. I’m a qualified Mountain Bike Leader and I’m Outdoor First Aid trained. Both of us have experience of cold water swimming.
Please research ‘cold water shock’ and exercise caution.
