Did you put your clocks forward?? It’s now BCT – British Cycling Time!!
We’re starting it tomorrow by riding the Teignmouth Century route. This is a relatively kind 100 mile route with most of the climbing in the first half and a fairly rolling second half.
Meet at B&Q at 09:30 – a compromise due to the clocks going forward on Saturday evening! (making the mornings seem earlier!) We’ll then head to Les Deux Alpes and a clockwise loop up over Dartmoor to Exeter and then back around the coast to Teignmouth before cutting back inland towards Ashburton and back to Plymouth. The average pace for this ride will be in the region of 14mph.
There are several cut-off points for those wishing to join us but wanting a shorter ride.
We usually have our lunch on the seafront but this is dependant on the weather. If it’s too wet or too cold (probably) we’ll find somewhere indoors. Actually, if it’s too wet, we may well change the route altogether so please keep an eye on this post!
You can now happily munch on those hot cross buns and Easter eggs all weekend, completely guilt-free, knowing that you’ll be burning thousands of calories on this ride. Me, I’ll be needing to do it twice!
