Saturday A Road Ride – 24th June***Route updated***

Thanks to Justin Stanbrook, who has volunteered to lead a very very gentle / easy A ride this week, with the Nello in mind (The next day) So it’s the day before the nello, I’m sure there’s plenty wanting a nice steady ride. So from B&Q to sparkwell, cornwood then onto the dragon hill and cadover, a little circuit of burrator and to the well earned cafe stop at Longash Then we have a choice of a fast ride back via yelverton.

Thanks to Mike Taylor for volunteering to lead the Leisure ride this weekend, plan is as follows; Will head out to Yelverton via Lee Mill, Cornwood, Cadover. Coffee either at Long Ash or Lopwell. Would be good if anyone riding this group confirm they are doing so asap, so Mike can give Lopwell some advance notice as they tend to get a bit irate if loads of  turn up unannounced

Alternate Road ride – 17th June (Classic Training)

Tim Halloran will be leading a Alternate road ride this weekend, planned as a training ride for the upcoming Dartmoor Classic. His plan is as follows and from his mouth directly; Dartmoor Classic looms large and I need some hill training this Saturday, so due to my lack of imagination. I’m riding two laps of the 2nd half Classic loop. First loop from Dousland having climbed Les Deux Alpes. From there it’s 35 miles around and Second loop from Princetown is 40 miles. Lots of options for cafe stop – Foxtor Cafe perhaps on the last lap. Which allows folk … Read more…
