Saturday 16 Road Ride – 1st November
avatar

We never got to ride this route so with the sun shining what could be better than a trip to Cornwall? So it’s over the bridge and into the back lanes at Hatt and across to Callington.  Then we drop down to Newbridge and up the other side following the A390 to Merrymeet and Liskeard. Out past the station to Duloe, down the hill to Looe and up St Martins Hill back to Hessenford where we turn for Seaton and Downderry.  Back to Tregantle and around the coast to Cawsand, Millbrook, St John and across the ferry at Torpoint. Total route is … Read more…

Saturday Leisure Ride – 1st November
avatar

Well as it’s my pleasure to take the Leisure Ride again this week I thought we could combine it with our very own version of Autumn Watch ! And what better place to head for to do that than the café at Lopwell Dam. As is pretty much always the case in our beautiful peninsula there are some climbs and steep ones at that. But the double good news is that we will be taking these very gently and in the main they are short sharp and erm……..sweet. If you have never been on the super quiet roads through the … Read more…

Saturday 16 Road Ride – 25th October

Thanks to Adrian Longman for leading the 16 ride this week, and it looks like a good one…. As it appears we have  a favourable forecast I thought we might get some decent miles in before the winter bikes come out. Its a long and lumpy route but one of my favourites and takes us into Exeter with a cafe stop at Haldon Forest at the top of the Mamhead climb. There are plenty of options for cutting the ride short for anyone not wishing to complete the whole route and pace will be steady. See you at the start. Cheers, Adrian Full route … Read more…
