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.

Potentially a 12 -16 Christmas Road Ride – Saturday 21st December

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…

YOGi eBike Policy

As the growth of eBike use continues it is binging the sport of cycling to those who otherwise may not be able, to ride as well as becoming more and more attractive to those who simply want to enjoy a different ride.  As a club we applaud this but at the same time appreciate the need for guidelines and a policy. This policy should be read in conjunction with our standard ride guidelines and our club ‘Rides Ethos’, all available on this YOGi Cycling Website.  These are in place to clarify required behaviour of all members and guests on club rides.  The aim … Read more…

Christmas Festive MTB and Road Rides – Saturday 21st December

Hi All, The Saturday before Christmas is our traditional  pre Festive Rides day and so will end with a social meet at the Burrator Inn.  Great if you decorate your bike and/or wear your Christmas Jumpers/Santa hats.  Nothing is booked other than the staff advised we estimate numbers of circa 35 – 40 in number. 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…

12-14 Road Ride Saturday 7th December

Hi All, Hopefully I can remember how to ride a road bike, ages since I did a Saturday Club ride, so looking forward to seeing some of the usual faces and maybe some newer ones!

To help that mood along, we will head to Buckfastleigh and wave at all the children aged 1 – 90 on the Steam Train Santa Special as we drink coffee and eat cake! Route is:- Plympton – Lymham – Ivybridge – Wrangaton – South Brent – Rattery – Buckfastleigh (cafe … Read more…

Sat 30th 16-18 (15-17!!) Ride

Hi Everyone, As we get in to more of a winter training mode I’ll lead a ride on Saturday with a guide pace of 15-17. This means we’ll actively back it off a bit on the hills to level out the effort while still maintaining a good overall pace. Plan is to head to Ermington, up the valley to Avonwick and on to Totnes. From here it’s through Ipplepen to Newton Abbot and back via Ashburton (unless anyone wants to go to 360 for coffee and cake!). Should mean we get a good tailwind on the return leg…keeping everything crossed! … Read more…
