Saturday ‘14’ Road Ride – 20th October

Usual meeting time of 9am at B&Q Plympton.  Ride leader Kim Wiltshire. A straight forward route for the ’14’ this week. We’ll head into Plymouth City Centre and aim to be at the Torpoint Ferry for 9.45am. Once into Torpoint we’ll do the loop of St. John’s, Millbrook, Mount Edgecombe, Kingsand, Cawsand and Rame Head. The idea is to do this first as most of us miss this out when it’s tacked onto the end of a ride. From Rame Head we head west down the Cornish coast before stopping at Seaton for our well earned cafe stop. From the … Read more…

Shred Classic Plymouth Hoe – Sunday 13th May

The Shred Classic Bicycle Race returns to Plymouth Hoe for another evening of fast paced road cycling action. The Shred Classic is not your normal bike race; the short circuit, tight bends and risk of elimination make action the top priority. It’s exciting to watch and even more exciting to ride. This year the Shred Classic follows on from a whole day of cycling as the Sky Ride mass participation ride visits the city. Bring your family along for a gentle pedal around the Sky Ride loop during the day and then get ready for the show on the Hoe … Read more…

Saturday ‘14’ Road Ride – 28th April

The Saturday 14 is being led by yours truly (Kim) this week. I had planned to do the Slapton route but the Sunday crew beat me to it! So I thought why not go the opposite way and along the Cornish coast; some people might want to do a double header. Here’s the route. Not sure which way the mapping runs but I intend to do the St.Johns/Millbrook section first (for a change) and then run west down the coast to the cafe stop at Seaton before heading back on the A374 down the valley back to Torpoint.  Total distance … Read more…

Thursday Burrator Road Circuits

Thursday Burrator Road Circuits; meet at the Burrator Reservoir Dam from 5.30pm onwards. Just drop in whenever it suits you. The idea is to start riding anti-clockwise around the lake, people can then join in whenever they turn-up. This is ideal for any riders – experienced or novice. Ride around in small groups and get a great workout. Obviously to start with, you will need lights but we intend to continue this into the summer. It’s early days for this ride but  it has started to gather momentum. We’ll also occasionally run the ride from different areas.

Littering!

It has been brought to our attention that a member of the club has been seen discarding gel wrappers whilst on a YOGi ride. Obviously this is unacceptable whether on a YOGi ride or not. It’s always extremely depressing to see a trail of used gel wrappers on every sportive – not cool! Respect your envronment and set a good example – we know that 99.9% of you do just that. We’d also like to remind the 00.1% of this part of the YOGi ethos; We remain aware that we are riding under the YOGi Cycling Banner and do not behave in a manner … Read more…

YOGi Team Kit

Just a quick heads-up to everyone; stocks of YOGi cycling kit are becoming low once more, having 400 members does tend to eat through it!

So, don’t leave ordering until the last minute, get in early. There is still kit available but I will also be placing another order with our manufacturer soon.

Springtime Pursuits – Sarah Austin 3rd

A great result for YOGi Sarah Austin in the first road race of her season, taking 3rd place in the Springtime Pursuits. Another rider with YOGi connections, Lyndsey Glazier, worked hard in the scratch group finishing 8th. The British Cycling website had this to say, The race came together after about two of the five laps, and while some of the front group couldn’t stay with the pace of the more experienced riders four did manage to keep up, and Austin did well to take third spot.
