Hi All, Well the last Saturday YOGi ride before Christmas, so a bit of a lazy one really, and of course will end at the Burrator Inn at approximately 12:30.

Route is:- Leigham – Green Lane – Douseland (to drop off warm/dry/festive clothes) -Walkhampton – Horrabridge – Moretown – Harford Bridge – Dartmoor Gliding Centre – Tavistock (coffee at Bobs and maybe meet up with Yorkies MTBers) – Drakes Trail -Yelverton – Burrator. As ever looking forward to a Saturday ride with you all!
Dan Richmond has offered to take this ride. He has not planned a route yet but will decide in the morning at HQ.
Yorkie has offered to do an alternative MTB ride this week, here is his plans – Will probably be riding on my MTB and using that enjoyable cycling machine to ride to Bobs in Tavy via the cycle path if anyone wants to join me. As it’s an MTB it will only be about a 10 speed pace. Regards Yorks

I have given the weather caveat but it would be sensible that IF YOU WANT TO EAT then you indicate so by commenting on our FB page or Web site (this isn’t a commitment).

Hi All, Weather forecast is for a pretty stormy and wet day so we are cancelling all road rides on grounds of safety. By all means come to some unofficial arrangements if you want to ride regardless.
