So I’m looking to venture out to Moretonhampsted via Princetown and post bridge, back down to Bovey, cafe stop there (about 37 miles in I think so bring plenty of snacks) and back through Ashburton etc. Approx 65 miles and around 5000ft of climbing but to be fair climbing probably not accurate. Average speed around 14mph so a relaxed ride for those who would like to step up for some extra mileage.
