We had a excellent turn out last year and i’m hoping we can … Read more…

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…
This 3rd Saturday ride we will meet at the usual place at 10am at Roborough Rock Carpark, then drive on to the start point nearby. (The big rock on the old airfield near Yelverton). It’s looking nippy, but their a gap in the weather, but will probably stay fairly low in the woods. Aim to be back at about 1330 to 1400hrs. Bring a change of clothes as we will go to the Pub for lunch/snack/drink afterwards. (Optional). Cheers John Allan

Official Club road rides will be cancelled this weekend, as we cannot guarantee the absolute safety of our Members. Although thawed in areas, we cannot guarantee that all roads surfaces are safe to ride. As an example Ivybridge is still snowed under and only stopped a hour or so ago after starting again. We welcome any unofficial rides to be organised through the YOGi Fb page and encourage you to ride safely if you do venture out. I hope you can understand and look forward yo seeing you next week
Apologies. You may notice that I’ve not yet put a request out for ride leaders. Based on current Severe weather and forecasts, Club rides this weekend are looking very unlikely. A decision will be made tomorrow (Friday evening with regular weather checks throughout the day

Hi all Following a successful Time Trial series (YOGi Members only) last year, I am planning to organise and run these again for 2018. I’m keen to determine the best day (evenings) of the week for everyone. Last year we completed these on a Wednesday and some of the feedback was that it co-incided with many wanting to ride traditional Wednesday club rides. So my thoughts were perhaps a Tuesday evening and which would create less competition for dates with Plymouth Tri Club and Alltrax. Please let me know your thoughts, i need to submit date requests by Monday latest.
