Note: We will NOT be meeting at the usual place as that is the wrong side of the Moor and the extra half an hour to give extra time to drive there! Not a huge long ride so no need for lunch but quite hilly … Read more…

Yogi Fun Ride – Aerial footage

Last Saturday we had a great turnout of 14 riders and 1 dog in perfect weather.  We started from Cadover bridge, heading up onto the moor.  This video shot by Windy was just a small part at the start of the route but gives a bit of a feel for what our MTB rides are like.  Hopefully it will be the first of many.

MTB Fun / Social Ride – Sat 6th September

For this weeks Saturdays Fun Ride / Social ride we will meet at Blackaton Cross Carpark (aka Lone Tree Carpark), near to Cadover bridge at 10am. Directions: From right next to Cadover bridge (walking symbol marked 207) take the small minor road up towards the top of Lee Moor quarries. The public Carpark is marked with a cycling logo in the attached map. I’m thinking that if the weather is dry we will have a Pub stop for lunch/drink at Cornwood, but only if it’s dry. Otherwise we will do the usual and go after the ride for those that … Read more…

MTB – Fun/Social Ride – Sat 21st June

Fun Ride – Saturday 21st June
Meet at South Brent Carpark @ 1000hrs.

This Saturday we will be riding as normal, but as it’s going to be hot and Sunny 🙂 we thought we should find somewhere with water for the odd swim or two, so we’ll Meet at South Brent (the old Railway car park, like we’ve used before) and ride up to the Avon Dam (Swim Stop, Dam jumping) and right up onto the moor. Some great descents plus the usual banter and jelly snakes!

Might be worth bringing some sandwiches/snacks, plenty of water and some swimming togs! Read more…

Sunday Road Ride – 14th July (Report)

Firstly, we can’t guarantee a formal ride on every Sunday as, like the Saturday Rides, they rely on someone to volunteer as leader. I’m happy to lead on the Sundays that I’m available but I also like to ride on Saturdays and can’t always do both. If anyone would like to volunteer to lead one then please let us know and we’ll post it!

On arrival at B&Q I realised that the later start time of 10:00 was not necessarily a good thing! It was incredibly hot down there already and I’d turned up early for a change too so had to swelter away until Holly turned up with yet another tyre problem to take my mind off the heat! Read more…

Saturday 14 Road Ride – 22nd June (Report+Photos)

With our usual high number of YOGi entries for this weekend’s Dartmoor Classic, the small turnout at B&Q was to be expected. Eight of us set out on today’s 14 adventure. A nice round number and, to be honest, I chose a very easy week to lead a ride! I decided on one of my favourite routes. The last time I led it the weather turned out so bad that only a handful of us completed the whole route! This time the weather forecast could have easily gone that way too but luckily it didn’t. The strong winds would be … Read more…

For the ’14’, John Ambrose had come up with a great route that we hadn’t ridden before and 17 of us departed from B&Q to follow his route to Exeter for lunch! We took the usual route to Ashburton (via Ivybridge and South Brent) by which time our numbers had swollen to 20! From here we followed the A38 cycle path, crossing over the … Read more…
