It’s the first Saturday of the month this Saturday so planning on leading the classic stepping stones route. Plenty of swimming spots and a pint on route if we wish🍻 Meet at Roborough rock at 10am, then drive on to start somewhere near the Whiteworks cottages👍 That is the large rock on the old airfield, just before Yelverton on the left (travelling from Plymouth) Bring a change of clothes for the Pub afterwards. On on Windy 07827353972
for those who don’t use facebook, here’s the message I have posted – This year there is no joint Christmas get together with the Yogi MTB’ers. So far we have an option to book the Nibana in Crownhill for around 40 people on the 15th November (Friday) Before we book I need to know potential numbers of people who would be interested in attending. If we have more than this we will try and find another venue, (possibly the Burrator Inn?). Price will be around £22 per person but will confirm once booked. Please can you message below if interested … Read more…

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.
Justin is leading this week, here’s his planned route – Bovey cafe 360 stop. Classic route to Beckaford Farm and Haytor. Back via Ashburton. Should be a fondo.
Meet at the usual place, Roborough Rock Carpark, near Yelverton @ 10am We will drive to a nearby startpoint. Bring a change of clothes, for the Pub afterwards. We may find somewhere to swim 🙂. Weather still looks fairly good still. Cheers John 07824505817
