Dave Skinner, (more commonly known as the Swifter Shifter), is the man with the plan for you all this week. 🙂
And he has rather a nice route in mind for you all. I understand Paul Brindley has offered him some assistance too, thank you Paul. 🙂
So this week you’ll head out via Plympton to Ivybridge and on to Wrangaton. From there you’ll ride to Marley Head, Dartington, Buckfast, Dean Prior and on to South Brent , the all important Cake stop will be at the Pack Horse. Afterwards you will ride back via Ivybridge, Lee Mill, Sparkwell, Hemerdon, Plympton to B & Q.
If this weather holds you are in for a treat. Please remember to be respectful. We expect all riders to obey the highway code at all times. Riding 3 abreast is not appropriate and if you are asked to ride in single file then please do so. It’s not for you to make your own judgement in regard to this.
Those stronger riders might like to consider if they may be pulling the pace on and thereby causing others to struggle. If so be brave and have a go with the 16. I know there are concerns over not being able to keep up or struggling but unless you try you’ll never know and hey you may find you have a fab ride!! If you do bite the bullet and ride with the 16 for the first time just let the ride leader know.
Have a great time folks, I won’t be out but will see some of you on Sunday for ‘more fun on the bike’.
As usual meet B&Q Coypool 9am, but remember it’s the far end of the car park now!
