Saturday 14 Road Ride – 26th July

I have to work on Saturday so won’t be available to lead and am hoping someone wants to step up and take the ride. It’s a good opportunity for anyone who wants to lead their first ride; numbers are often smaller in August as everyone swans off on holidays, weather is warm, everyone is happy! Read more…

Saturday 14 Road Ride – 19th July
avatar

Well, either the forcast is correct and it’s going to be humid and a bit wet, or we’re all going to get fried while riding our carbon lighting rods.  We’ll see shall we? For those of you that want to laugh in the face of Thor (the Norse god, not the mightily-fine-thighed Hushovd) here is the route: B&Q, Ridgeway, Cyclepath to Ivybridge, right turn at Wrangaton and out to California Cross, Gara Bridge climb.  Join the Totnes road at Halwell and head towards Dartmouth.  We could have a vote to see if we want the extra climb of going into Dartmouth and out … Read more…

Hi All Following last weeks AGM when it was announced, this is just to formally advise that both Chris Glazier and Graham Lang have decided to step down from the YOGi Committee.  Of course losing two highly valued and effective members amounts to a sad time really.  That at least though is tempered by our two newest members who have volunteered to step in and replace them.  So a on behalf of the rest of the committee and all our members lets give a big welcome and thanks to Claire Tonkin, who just happens to be a Chartered Accountant and hence knows a … Read more…

Saturday 14 AGM road ride
avatar

Weather’s looking a bit ‘changeable’ for Saturday so there will be a  bit of deciding on the day which route we’ll take.  The final route will also have to take into account how we are doing for time in order to get back to Yelverton for the afternoon’s festivities. Meet at B&Q as usual at 9pm – we will head up the cycle path to pick up people at Yelverton.  If you want to park there ready for the AGM instead of meeting at B&Q, we should be up there between 9.30 and 9.45.  From there we will head towards … Read more…

Hi all, Mark Reed has kindly volunteered to lead this week’s AGM ride, here’s his route.

Thanks to John Ambrose for volunteering to lead this week’s 16 ride. Here is his proposed route: Proposed ride starts at B&Q and finishes at Yelverton by 1330 for the Agm. If only a few takers may suggest we join the 14 as this day is all about fun on the bike and being social. Strava link as follows: http://www.strava.com/routes/588662 It’s about 63 miles at just under 1800m of climbing. There are a couple options to shorten it at Brentor or Gulworthy if we need to. It includes well known YOGi route roads with a little used section around Peter … Read more…
