This week we will be running all three of our road rides (12, 14 & 16) in conjunction with the cycle event being hosted by the Stratstone Jaguar dealer (for specific details please see the event post). The two rides (12 and 14/16) will be leaving from the Jaguar dealer at Langage, Plympton at 09:30. Anyone wanting to borrow a bike from Cogs or fancying some early morning refreshments should aim to be at Stratstone Jaguar for 08:45ish in order to be ready to start the ride promptly at 09:30. The routes are as follows:
12 Ride – ride leader – Helen Ballantyne: From Langage we will head out to Buckfastleigh via Sparkwell,Cornwood, Ivybridge, Wrangaton and South Brent. At Buckfastleigh we will stop for a coffee and cake at the Refreshment Rooms at the South Devon Railway Station. Route home is the reverse. Estimated average speed: 12mph. Approx. distance 45 miles.
14 Ride (incorporating the 16 Ride) – ride leaders – Chris Glazier, Jez and Graham Lang: After leaving Langage we will make our way out through Sparkwell and Cornwood to Ivybridge before turning right and heading towards Ermington. From here we will head to California Cross where there will be a chance for those wanting a shorter ride to head home on the A3121 (ride distance approx. 40 miles). For the rest of us we will continue to our café stop at the Avon Mill Garden Centre. The return journey takes us back to Ivybridge past Wrangaton before heading home. Estimated average speed: 14mph. Ride distance approx. 55 miles.
Please note that there will be car parking available for those starting the rides at Jaguar and should anyone prefer to leave from the usual start point at B&Q, then there will be a ride leader leaving promptly at 09:00 to meet the ride at the Jaguar dealership.
