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…

All rides continue as per usual with both the route and ride leader, to be determined on the morning Have a great weekend all
So with the weather looking pretty bad for tomorrow but much better on Sunday just in time for the Nationals Hill Climb at Haytor how about a ride out to see some of the action? Meeting at The George Roborough – opposite the park and ride at 9am we’ll ride across the moors via Princetown and either Widdecombe or Jay’s Grave and drop in on the action. We should get to Haytor around 11-11:30 but with 180 riders setting off at minute intervals there will be plenty of people to cheer on!! We’ll lay on some simple refreshments at Haytor … Read more…

Bill Francis has offered to lead this week. Bill has posted a more detailed map view on facebook. but essentially as his words below. Anyone(14 or 15+) for Dartmouth Cafe Alfresco, ferry and back via Totness. I think that’s the way it goes.
I’m happy to lead a 16-18 ride this week if there are any takers! Thinking we’ll head out through Tavistock and Gunnislake to Callington. Then some variation of Kelly Bray, Pensilva before dropping down to Liskeard, back lanes across to Trerulefoot, then Seaton Tregantle and back by the ferry. We can stop whenever but either the farm shop at Pensilva or Seaton are the obvious choices but hey, I’m easy! Route looks mostly like this but will be slightly longer, I still need to get the September Fondo after all!! (And yes, we’ll be back before the rain…honest!! 😉
Andy B and Jonno W have offered to lead this week – Jonno and I can take the 12/14 this Saturday route as below https://www.strava.com/routes/21950705 Early Autum avoid the Tamar bridge loop to Seaton challenge ! As everyone is at their peak fitness this time of year we have planned at alternative route to Seaton,there’s a fair bit of climbing 5700 ft so it will be a steady pace with plenty of re grouping as required along the way. The cafe stop is 34 miles in so bring plenty of food. HQ up through Leigham pick up at the George … Read more…
