Saturday Road Ride Leaders

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…

The route i’m planning is roughly as per the link below; https://www.strava.com/routes/8009997 Cafe stop will be a Cake stop somewhere in Teignmouth or, i may even be tempted for Fish & Chips on … Read more…

Saturday Leisure & A Road ride – 11th March

Both the Leisure and A ride will continue to take place as usual. We kindly ask that a ride leader and route is determined on the Morning. Which may be a quiet one due to an alternate MTB / CX ride organised. Therefore this could be the perfect opportunity for any tentative riders who are new to leading to step forward. See you in the morning

Saturday C Road Ride – 11th March

Thankfully I’m back on it this weekend following my Daughters birth and my wife’s recovery from labour, so I’ll lead the C ride. However I’ll only be out until about 12 due to commitments in the afternoon. So with this in mind I’ve not actually come up with an exact route. I’m planning about 50-60 miles or so and was thinking a local loop. So perhaps heading out to Elburton and doing Brixham, Yealmpton, Modbury, California Cross, Avonwick, back lanes to Marley head and back via South Brent, Ivybridge, Cornwood, Dragon Hill up to Lee Moor and back down to … Read more…

2017 Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100 Team Entry

Hi all, As a British Cycling affiliated club I’m pleased to advise that for the third successive year we have been invited to apply for team places for the brilliant Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100. So based on previous years when the organisers have accepted a bigger percentage of female than male applications for the individual balloted places, I have requested two all male teams and one mixed team. Thinking it unlikely we can field an all female team, but to balance that I have said that if we are only offered one team place, then it will be a mixed team (2 … Read more…
