It’s the 3rd Saturday of the month. We will meet at 10am at Roborough Rock Carpark (large rock on the old airfield near to Yelverton). Then drive on somewhere close by to start the ride. I’m expecting to be back at the Burrator Inn for lunch/snack/drink at around 2pm. Bring a change of clothes for afterwards. Weather is getting a bit cooler than recently at 17 degrees, with light winds. Rain is NOT forecast, but come prepared just in case. See you there John 07824505817
