Mike Taylor can take the leisure ride this Saturday. Distance: about 30 miles. Route: Up Deux Alpes, Lee Moor, Cadover, Meavy, coffee at Long Ash before returning via Dousland, Burrator (clockwise), Sheepstor, Cadover, Borringdon and Colebrook. I’ll turn off at Colebrook but for any needing to get back to Coypool it’s just a matter of a mile or so.

Well as the somewhat iffy forecast makes it is likely to be one of those days when our numbers will be low, makes sense to expect a combined ride. Hence the heading! Should numbers be better than indicated via our FB page, then we will have an impromptu re jig in the morning. Whatever…… my plan is to do this route at whatever pace we mutually agree. Though it won’t be suitable for Leisure Paced riders. It will leave at the normal 09.00 from Coypool. Coypool – Leigham – Yelverton (Via Green Lane so not long on the A386!) – … Read more…

You can park there in the morning if you prefer to join your ride choice here. Volunteer ride leaders are asked to ensure rides pass the Burrator Inn early on to enable anyone who prefers to do so, to drop off dry/warm clothes. Rides will … Read more…

Thought we could get in to the Christmas spirit now we are well into December.
