This week we will return to the other of my preferred Leisure Ride routes on the basis that it is has every type of terrain imaginable, keeps to this rides principles of distance and is all in a particularly beautiful part of Plymouths close by outskirts! To boot even this late in the year there seems to be plenty of autumn colours to add to the day!
Another bonus is that with this route we are usually home around 1pm so you will have the pm to wash your bike and then go Christmas shopping :)!
Plym Valley Cycle Path to Yelverton – Crapstone – Buckland Monochorum – Milton Coombe – Lopwell Dam (coffee and cake here at the Old Pump House) – Tamerton Foliot – Looseleigh Lane – Derriford Roundabout – Home. Circa 25 miles
As a reminder this ride is aimed at all those who enjoy a steady social ride, so it may well be as slow as 10 mph average. This route is scattered with short sharp climbs so we will ride them all at an enjoyable pace. Well no apologies gotta love the hills to ride around our ‘neck of the woods’.
Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and some new ones.
