C ride ….clockwise Gunnislake and Pork/Merrivale – 2nd April

Joint leaders this week for the C ride thanks to Kim Wiltshire who will be assisting me.

This week’s route will see us initially head for Cornwall via the bridge, meet us there if you wish just before 09:45am, after that it’s the main road towards Callington before turning off towards Hatt and then heading North on the quieter roads to come out just before Callington.  Should have the wind behind us heading North until we head East to Gunnislake and then the easterly climb out to Gulworthy.  After Gulworthy we stay on the main road into and through Tavistock (no stopping at Bob’s please!) and then the climb up Merrivale and Pork Hill to the Foxtor.

After cake and coffee it’s the normal direct route back across and down Peak Hill to Yelverton and the main road across Roughborough Down.

Total distance is just under 50 miles with the Foxtor at 33 miles.  Not too much climbing..believe it or not! with ‘only’ 4,000ft to get up this week.

Full route can be found here.
