16-18 Ride Saturday 28th September

I’m happy to lead a 16-18 ride this week if there are any takers! Thinking we’ll head out through Tavistock and Gunnislake to Callington. Then some variation of Kelly Bray, Pensilva before dropping down to Liskeard, back lanes across to Trerulefoot, then Seaton Tregantle and back by the ferry. We can stop whenever but either the farm shop at Pensilva or Seaton are the obvious choices but hey, I’m easy! Route looks mostly like this but will be slightly longer, I still need to get the September Fondo after all!! (And yes, we’ll be back before the rain…honest!! 😉
