Pre Christmas Ritual ’14’ Road Ride – Saturday 20th December
avatar

As is custom on the last Saturday before Christmas this week’s ride will end at the Burrator Inn, where we will meet up with the other Road and MTB rides for a post ride social gathering! Tinsel and Fancy Dress encouraged! And to be extra helpful the ride will pass the Burrator Inn at approx. 10:00am (ish!) on the outward leg. That way those who prefer have the option to leave their car and warm/dry/normal/Christmas Jumpers/clothes there to change into.  Of course the extra keenies will leave their car early and ride down to Coypool whereas those who want a lie … Read more…

Saturday 16 Road Ride – 13th December
avatar

Thanks to Adrian ‘the Jensie’ Longman for offering to lead this weeks 16 ride…in his words: It’s looking like a reasonable forecast again for Sat and a route out to Bodmin Moor is planned so that I shouldn’t get us lost. So it’s out to the bridge, Callington, Minions, Draynes Valley to Jamaica Inn, Colliford, Dobwalls, Looe and back to the ferry. Cafe stop will be Looe. I think steady will be the order of the day as I suspect that most of us will have struggled to get the miles in of late. See you Sat. Cheers, Adrian. Route:  http://www.strava.com/activities/116964941 This is a great route … Read more…

MTB Fun / Social Ride – Saturday 6th Dec 2014
avatar

Meet at Roborough Rock car park @ 10am (large lump of Granite by the old airfield near Yelverton). We will ride from there. Best to bring a change of clothes for afterwards as we will go to the Pub for a drink/snack/meal afterwards as per usual. Weather wise, it looks dry, not much wind, but around 0-3degrees, so dress appropriately. John 07824505817

Better late than never…here is the plan for tomorrow’s 16 ride Thought we  could start with a gentle lead out across the pan flat South Hams before heading up on to Dartmoor.  So the suggested route is out through Plymstock and up the A379 through Yealmpton and on to Ermington.  Then up the valley and straight on to Avonwick to pick up the Totnes road. From Totnes it’s Dartington and through the lanes to Buckfast.  Enough of the easy stuff and time for a bit of work, we head off to Holne and Vennford eventually coming out at the top of … Read more…

It promises to be a great day weather wise and, being December, I thought we would take a trip to Cornwall’s Beaches / SE Coast. Normal start at B&Q 9am. From here we will head out to the Torpoint Ferry via Embankment Road, past Faraday Mill and behind Warner Village to Notte Street. Then onward and upwards up through Devonport. Once across, we will go up through Torpoint and take a left on Trevol Road past HMS Raleigh. We then head down towards St John and on to Millbrook – Kingsand – Cawsand leading us onto Military Road (Rame Coastal … Read more…

Saturday Leisure Ride – 6th December

It seems like a good few weeks have passed since I last had the pleasure of leading the Leisure Ride but here we are it has come around again. I’m thinking that after a nice dry week we would simply do a repeat of my last route. Well that’s taking it the feedback was honest and everyone did enjoy the first version :). As ever I confess there are the usual hills to embrace but the last time we did this ride everyone coped just fine and anyway we will take them at a genuinely gentle pace and you will … Read more…

Extra MTB Fun Ride – Saturday 29th Nov 2014
avatar

Extra MTB Fun Ride – tomorrow Saturday 29th Nov 2014 We thought as the weather looked good we could do an extra Fun Ride. Meet at Dartmeet public carpark at 10:15am. On the road from Two Bridges towards Ashburton. Some nice technical descents and great riding in the Dart valley. Might be worth bringing a bite to eat on the ride, but will probably go to the pub for food afterwards still. John 07824505817 See map below Dartmeet car park Map

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…
