This is the first of the club’s Leisure ride, a reminder that these rides will be riding at a pace of between 10 and 12 mph so to ride this you should be able to cope with around 30 miles over a 3 hour period. There will be a café stop and on this first ride it will be at just under the half way point. Hybrid and road bikes are perfectly suited to these rides. The rides will cover around 30 miles and generally not more than 35miles.
This weeks ride will be led by myself and will head out through Plympton and climb up through Sparkwell to Cornwood, from Cornwood we will follow the road out to pass behind Ivybridge towards Bittaford and on to our café stop at Wrangaton.
Following the café stop we will cross the A38 before heading down the Ermington valley and then back to Ivybridge. We will follow the direct route back to Plympton along the cycle path and then back to our start point.
The ride is just over 30 miles and will include just over 2,000ft of climbing (and descending!). The route can be found by clicking here Please note we will be following the route shown on the map in reverse this week so please ignore the distance markers!
The ride should be back shortly after 1:00pm
If anyone has any questions on the ride then please post below.
