Hi All, well the weather though not as certain. Is still looking dodgy for tomorrow morning so regrettably we are cancelling the road rides. In August what 😩! Safety has to come first and no one has come forward to lead, so makes the decision a bit easier. Anyone wanting to take a ride on Sunday please post route, meet time etc.
With thanks to Bill for volunteering to ride lead this route again. Okehampton loop starting from HQ. Leigham, Tavy, Lydford, Okehampton, Moretonhamstead, Bovey cafe stop at 360.. Approx 76 miles 6000 ft of hills.
Early Doors Ride option Sat 29th June ALTERNATIVE MEET POINT – The Elburton Inn @7am ⏰ Ride – Slapton Loop Distance: 63 miles Climbing: 5000ft Ave Speed: 16mph+ No cafe stops so bring food. 🍌 🍌 🍌
Dan Richmond has kindly offered to take this ride; Hq to Sparkwell, cornwood, ivybridge, wrangerton, cali cross to the lazy fox at modbury..then back along the valley…with an opportunity to do a noss loop (if anyone is interested)
So I’m looking to venture out to Moretonhampsted via Princetown and post bridge, back down to Bovey, cafe stop there (about 37 miles in I think so bring plenty of snacks) and back through Ashburton etc. Approx 65 miles and around 5000ft of climbing but to be fair climbing probably not accurate. Average speed around 14mph so a relaxed ride for those who would like to step up for some extra mileage.
