Saturday D Road Ride – 18th April
avatar

This week’s D ride is heading to the seaside, but instead of those brave enough to head West we’ve opted to go in the other direction. Our cunning plan is to do the hard work on the way out into the headwind and then enjoy being pushed home…hmm, we’ll see! So the route will be some kind of variation on a Dartmouth loop with the plan to head out through Ermington, up the valley and California Cross before one of my favourite climbs at Gara. Then it’s Moreleigh and Dartmouth before heading for the coast and hopefully some respite from … Read more…

Saturday Leisure Ride – 18th April
avatar

Hi All, It’s probably predictable for those who know my favourite Leisure Ride route, especially when the weather is promising to be sunny!  So yes we will head to SE Cornwall and the Cliff View Cafe.  I do like to advise there are the inevitable Cornish lumps and bumps to negotiate but we will do so at an ‘enjoyable for all’ pace and anyway it’s the reaching the top that gives us all that sense of achievement. We will aim for the 10:00 am ferry so we don’t get this ride and the A Ride mixed up :).  I’ve just … Read more…

Sat 18th, YOGi ‘A’ Ride … a trip to the seaside at Seaton
avatar

Hi all, my first ‘A’ ride so treat me gently!!;)  as the title suggests we’re heading for Seaton this week

This week’s route will take us down to the Torpoint Ferry, for anyone who wishes to meet us there we will leave no earlier than the 0945 ferry.  Once in sunny Cornwall we will route past HMS Raleigh before picking up the main Trerulefoot road until we reach Anthony.  Here we will take a left and head up to Tregantle before taking the road all the way down into Millbrook, back at sea level means only one thing a short sharp climb up and over towards Kingsand and Cawsand.  We’ll actually bypass both and head up on to the stunning Rame peninsula before heading along the equally stunning clifftop past Freathy, Crafthole, descending into Downderry and then along to Seaton for our café stop.

C Ride 11th April…a little trip across the water to Cornwall :-)
avatar

Weather forecast is a westerly wind with dry and sunny intervals :-) perfect for a trip across to Seaton with a nice tail wind home.

Full route is down to the ferry for a 0945 sailing…..late risers take note!! :-)  We’ll head out past HMS Raleigh before joining the main road down to Antony, a left up the hill towards Tregantle and then follow the main road down into Millbrook, a meander alongside the estuary before the climb up to the church, a regroup here likely before a trip around Kingsand and Cawsand and a gently climb up to Rame Head and along the cliff back to Tregantle Read more…

Friday Philosopher’s Ride – 10th April
avatar

This week we are changing the start time back to the original 9.30 as the extra half hour to plan for the winter weather is no longer required. Depart from the George 9.30 am. The ride will be about 30 miles with a leisurely cafe stop at the Foxtor, Princetown.  There will be no formal ride leader so riders will need to organise themselves at the George.
