In order for our Saturday Road Rides to take place, we need volunteers to lead. If you can lead a ride or two (or even more) that would be fantastic and we would like to hear from you. There is a page of guidance and notes to help ride leaders and new riders here. Our amazing club is run purely by volunteers. If you would like to do your bit, here’s your chance. Thank you! Below is a list of ride dates and leaders, where we have them. If you wish to volunteer please leave a note in the comments section … Read more…

With the weather looking so promising again for Saturday what could be better than a trip to the seaside, yeay Fingers crossed Greg Learoyd is still happy to lead this week and we’re heading to Salcombe via some variation of a Dartmouth – Kingsbridge route.  Should mean we get a good blast through Slapton, Chillington and Frogmore, one of my favourite stretches of road!  Cafe stop is in Salcombe, any suggestions for a good cafe welcome?  Home is through West Alvington (if we find the right lane) and Aveton Gifford, then maybe California Cross, maybe straight down the 379.  Whatever, it promises to be … Read more…

Hi all, I will be guiding the 14 ride this week. I’m running this ride in full winter training mode (easy going with extra cake) as am really unfit at the mo lol. A good time for any 12 riders thinking of stepping up to the 14 ride to do so, enjoy. From our usual start point, B&Q car park at Plympton 09:00am, we will head out along the cycle track to Yelverton (we will drop onto the road just before end of the track to avoid the muddy bit), here is a chance for anyone wishing to join us here to do … Read more…

Saturday 16 Road Ride – 22nd Nov

This week’s suffering will be delivered by our very own rising star, James ‘Gammy Leg’ Cox who has chosen a route that plays to his particular strengths i.e. uphill and lots of it, thanks for that James! So the route: From YOGi HQ it’s Deux Alpes – Yeleverton – Horrabridge – Jordan Lane – Pork & Merrivale – Postbridge – Morty – Dunsford (skilfully failing to mention Doccombe in the route description!) – Down the valley to Bovey Tracey – Haytor – Ashburton and the long grind home!  Suggested cafe stop is Darmoor Lodge but the usual flexibility applies. Overall route is … Read more…

Saturday Leisure Ride – 22nd November
avatar

It’s my turn to lead the Leisure Ride this week and, as everyone seemed to like it (or didn’t say otherwise!), I thought we’d use the route that we tried out the last time I led. Meet at B&Q at 09:00 and then exit Plymouth via the Ridgeway, Deep Lane, Lee Mill and the cycle path to Ivybridge. Here we’ll cross the A38 and head toward Ermington but take the left turn to Penquit. From Penquit we’ll cross the Erme valley and ride up the hill to take the Ridge Road to the top of the Erme Valley and Kittaford … Read more…

Having procrastinated long enough in the forlorn hope the weather forecast will improve, it hasn’t really done so! But with positive head firmly planted I remind myself that it is better to ignore them anyway.  Instead at 7:30 on Saturday morning take a cursory glance through the curtains and decide whether to go back to the warmth of the duvet or shove the pre ride porridge in to the microwave and jump in the shower.  But when you are leading the ride it’s not quite so easy to do that without feeling extra guilty!  Nevertheless here’s my caveat, if it’s really wet and hence unlikely … Read more…

Maximum slackness this week Thought we could have another go at the Roadford trip this week, assuming we’re not, errm, rained off again! Same route I posted before and standard 16 rules apply (steady pace but determined by those riding) Happy to go with the flow if anyone has another route they’d rather do! Hopefully see you tomorrow…
