Ian and me had the thought its about time we had another light hearted off road Saturday ride option and as a number of us now own Gravel/Adventure/Cross Bikes thought we would pick a route that is suitable for those and MTB’s. This is not a intended to be a full on thrash day more suitable to pretty much anyone who has some off road riding experience. The MTBers will be setting the pace not the faster Gravel/Cross riders 🙂
Yes expect tricky bits otherwise its not worth calling it an off road ride 🙂 and especially for those not on MTB’s you may have to resort to the odd short ‘hike a bike’ approach.
We will meet as usual at YOGi HQ Coypool for the 09:00 start!
Route is Wander up the Plym Valley – Yelverton (can meet us here approx. 10 am) – Burrator – Old Mine Lane – Leather Tor – Descent to Drakes Leat – Up Widow Maker (some parts are pretty technical but fun!) – Nuns Cross Bridleway – Princetown (a beer if we wanna be radical or if not then coffee/cake here) – From here we will decide which way back from either :-
Back on the Nuns Cross Bridleway via the Scout hut and Burrator – Yelverton – Home
or down the old railway line to Burrator -Yelverton – Home
Would be good to get some idea of who is likely to join us so comment below if so!
