The weather is looking dry but the temperature is forecasted as being cold, so staying low this week and heading around the Rame Head and on to Seaton. Route below – HQ, Torpoint Ferry, Millbrook, Maker, Rame Head, Seaton, Hessenford, Torpoint, HQ food stop will be at Seaton Cafe. Full route can be viewed here –https://www.strava.com/routes/16978164 50 miles with 1200M elevation. See you Saturday.
This weeks ride will take us across the ferry and in to bandit country! Current plan is to head to Looe, on to Dobwalls and Minions before heading back through Gunnislake, Tavistock and Whitchurch route back to base. Route is about 68 miles but with plenty of options to cut short depending on weather (could be wet and windy!) and what people want to do. Coffee stop when we’re ready but loads of options but probably worth bringing some food! Route can be found here Hope to see you on Saturday! 🙂
Simon will lead a 16-18 ride tomorrow.Route will be something along the lines of Callington via Gunnislake then either Seaton or Clifftop for a cafe stop before returning to base. I’ll plot a route later, plenty of options to cut short depending how bad the conditions are but think it may well be BNMCC!!
