Saturday D Road Ride – 23rd July

Mike will be leading the D ride again this week and has the following cunning plan… From HQ we’ll head to Paignton via Ermington and Totnes, then it’s on to Teignmouth and Newton Abbot before heading back with an option for a climb over Haytor for those who have the legs for it and back by the usual route. Cafe and pitstops will be decided on the day depending on the group and the pace will be determined by those riding. Looks to be a dry and warm day with little wind so perfect riding conditions and it’d be great … Read more…
